Apple Dumps YouTube App iPhone's iOS 6 won't bundle it anymore By Neal Colgrass, Newser Staff Posted Aug 6, 2012 4:24 PM CDT 43 comments Comments An iPhone. (AP Photo/Amy Sancetta, File) (Newser) – Looking forward to iOS 6 on your iPhone? Hope you don't love your YouTube app, because Apple announced today that it's ditching the pre-packaged app from its software, CNET reports. The official reason: "Our licensing to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended." That's about it, except Apple reminds customers to use YouTube on Safari or in an upcoming app made by Google. Apple's reason sounds fishy to Peter Kafka at AllThingsD: "Either Apple really doesn’t want to make its own version of a YouTube app, or Google really doesn’t want Apple to make one," he writes. Obviously Apple's relationship with Google has soured after Steve Jobs threatened to go "thermonuclear" over Android phones and Apple announced plans to drop Google Maps on the iPhone with a homemade version. The real issue? Probably that ads don't run on the current YouTube app, says Kafka.
