1. Open YouTube website in the Safari browser and tap on the aA sign in the upper left corner, then choose Request Desktop Website.
2. Start playing your video and tap on it so it becomes full-screen.
3. Tap on it to view the control panel and then, select the Picture-in-Picture icon.
4. Now you can go to your messengers or other apps and the video will continue to play in the background. You can move it around your phone screen as you like.
