How to fix the problem?

Error Loading Tap to Retry

In order to fix the problem and get rid of the error you will need to:

1.Go to the App Store and check if there is any updates for the YouTube App and update it. There is a good chance there is actually one and thus the error.

2.If for some reason you cant get the latest version due to your device being an older device and you get the message: Download an older version of this App? you can go ahead and download an older version that’s still compatible with the OS on your device.


3.If the above fails and the app refuses to update simply long press the App and click on the X in the left corner to uninstall the app completely. Once that’s done simply go back to the App store and download the app a fresh. You can also reboot the device after install.

So step #3 above usually solves the problem and the App such as YouTube that was giving the Error Loading Tap to Retry was usually fixed after that.
