Talking about the iOS platform, 4K support was made available in the year 2019 with HDR IN and iOS 14.
Reddit user Liskowskyy has posted a screenshot that is from the YouTube app. The streaming option of 2160 pixels is visible in the screen resolutions.

YouTube has rolled out a new streaming option regardless of screen resolution. For example, if your phone has a screen of 1080 pixels, then the user will only get to stream 1080 pixels of video. However, if you choose the high resolution option, the image of the video will be better than before. Google Pixel devices including Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 come with 1080 pixels. But now these smartphones can stream 4K video. However, it is also worth noting that to watch 4K videos, users will need a better internet connection.
