AppleInsider reports today that the release on Monday of iOS 6 beta 4 to developers has already thrown up at least one significant shock, with the news that the YouTube app, which has been a staple of iOS for the past few years, appears to be missing from the build. According to AppleInsider, it has been confirmed by people who have installed the beta on their devices today that the Apple-developed YouTube app is not included in the beta. This may not mean anything, of course. It’s possible that it will return in the next beta, or for the final gold beta and the version that is released to the public. On the other hand, as AppleInsider points out, the fact that Google owns You Tube could have something to do with the matter, and the possible elimination of the YouTube app from iOS 6 could be reflective of increasing tensions between Google and Apple, which have also been evidenced in Apple’s completely de-Googling its new iOS Maps app that will soon be appearing in iOS 6.
Cant say I ever use the stock app I just delete it. I hope apple adds the ability to delete those stock apps like weather and stocks
There's a lot of things I hoped Apple would do, but they want. To get the user experience I desired from iOS, I would have to jailbreak my device. I simply wish Apple would listen, they feel like their the best thing since sliced bread. They also know regardless of the lack of functionality in their products they will sale like crazy. But at least their allowing Google to build a YouTube app. I hope Apple maps work out as well.
