Let's be fair, the advent of the smartphone has seen our lives changes in ways we never thought possible.

And while we can update our wardrobe at the push of a button, speak to friends in Australia for free and keep an eye on celeb goss while composing an email to our boss, we STILL can't listen to songs on YouTube without keeping the app open...until now that is.

So, if you want to listen to all your favourite tracks on YouTube without having to sacrifice all other activities, simple follow the next four steps and listen to your heart's content!

1. Open YouTube in your Safari browser

The phone will ask if you want to open the YouTube app, be strong and say no.

2. Arrange the videos you want to play

Then - and this is the important bit - hit 'home' to exit the page.

3. But wait, you're not done yet!

Open the control centre by swiping up from the home screen.

4. Click play like you normally would

Your media playback will by synced wih your recently-arranged YouTube play list.

And hey presto, you've just beaten the system!
