    This from my testing seems to block the majority of youtube adverts.

    Under AdGuard Pro go into Privacy Settings
    Add a subscription
    Point it to the URL https://api.hackertarget.com/hostsearch/?q=googlevideo.com
    Wait for the Subscription to load
    Restart the VPN

    Test and let me know how you all get on.

    I found with or without your subscription AG blocked YouTube ads.
    Is there a specific video page where we can test the entry?

    With the YouTube iOS app, it shouldn't be possible to remove the ads. From what I recall, the ads are encrypted in the YouTube app (same with the Android YouTube app too).

    Odd it did work for me for a few days with using a method of blocking the URL's from where the adverts are pulled from but this was short lived. Another app which is a full blown VPN called Fogu also blocks YouTube adverts but significantly slows down when accessing websites from Safari on my iPhone 10.
