  1. I can only tap the 3 dots when my iphone is in landscape mode, so the playback speed option isn’t visible when I tap the 3 dots. When I try to scroll down to access playback speed, the entire menu flies offscreen so the only thing left is cancel. This was never an issue with older iPhones, so I haven’t needed to figure if out before. Any thoughts?

  2. This seems like a strange problem. Maybe you could try to reinstall the YouTube app and see if it fixes the problem.
