iPhones with iOS 14 or later, now support Picture -In-Picture (PIP) mode like their cousin, the iPad.

First, launch Settings (the gear icon). Refer to below image:
Now, scroll down and tap on the General option. See below image:
Next, tap on the Picture in Picture option. See following image:
Tap on it to open the Picture in Picture settings. Now, toggle off (disable) the Start PIP Automatically option. Refer to below image:
Now, the next time you return to the Home Screen while playing a video, the Picture-in-Picture will not pop-up automatically. To manually open Picture-in–Picture, just tap the Picture-in-Picture button (if the app you are using supports it.)
That’s it. You just disabled a possible annoying feature of iOS 14.
