“Picture-in-picture” mode is one of my favorite multitasking features. Recently, I was using PiP mode in YouTube on my Mac, and I wondered if this feature worked for iPad as well. So, I checked it out on my tablet and much to my surprise it worked pretty much the same way.

In this hands-on guide, I’m gonna share two super handy tips that can let you watch your favorite YouTube videos with Picture-in-Picture mode in Safari on iPad. While one way is to get it done without using any trick, the other method works using a smart shortcut called “PiP Video.”
