With iOS 6, Apple kicks out YouTube app(Read article summary)
Not long after announcing it would replace the Google Maps app with iOS Maps, Apple pulls another Google app from iOS 6: YouTube.
As PC World notes today, a new beta release of the forthcoming OS omits the familiar old YouTube app, which has been standard on iPhones and iPads from the beginning. In a statement to The Verge, Apple said the change was logistical. "Our license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended," an Apple rep said. "Customers can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the App Store."
