Good riddance. Site-specific apps have no business being preinstalled on the iPhone. YouTube made sense back when people were still finding their way around the device, but now, people who want it will easily find it in the App Store. Everyone else can delete one more app they never use.
Apple obviously did away with Google Maps in iOS 6, but another of the web giant’s biggest properties won’t be available as a default option, either. 9to5Mac noticed that the latest beta version of iOS 6 no longer includes the long-standard YouTube app, and Apple just told us that its license to include YouTube in iOS had expired. If you’re a heavy YouTube user, fear not — Apple also confirmed that YouTube will work in Safari and also noted that Google is making a new YouTube app that will be available in the App Store.
