    iOS 6 Beta 4 Removes Dedicated YouTube App - Mac Rumors

    I really couldn't care less if a stand-alone YouTube app is there or not... what little YT video I watch, it's embedded in a web page I'm viewing.

    Yup. High quality video option over 3G. The app never gave that. Unless you were jailbroken and used

    I knew this would happen - Apple stripping everything Google (since they own youtube) from within native iOS

    This may be part of Apple's ongoing battle to divorce itself from as much Google as possible. First Google Maps... now YouTube.

    I personally think that it will be available shortly in the App store along with the other Google apps for iOS... just won't be bundled on the phone with the iOS any longer...

    Well, Google will release the YouTube app and it should be available via the app store.
    What I'm concerned about is that, will the lack of Google maps (Apple maps instead) and native YouTube app hinder iOS 5 users from upgrading to iOS 6?

    That's not the same. That's just making a bookmark. Nothing else.

    Soon you wont be able to use Google! Better switch to Bing!

    There's no reason to upgrade now. They've taken away too much.

    I'm just going to stay on iOS5. There's nothing wrong with it. And actually, you could probably jailbreak your new iPhone and put iOS 5 on it.

    IOS5 will be to iOS6 what Windows 7 is to Windows 8. Better. The funny thing is watching all of this, it has made me respect Google. They really know how to spook Apple, and they really are catching up.

    But then that makes me think about why they get into all of these lawsuits anyway. They virtually sat back and let it happen. Why are they so scared now? I mean, Google went from nothing in the mobile sector to practically #1. Apple has no right to complain.

    They had plenty of time to stop it.

    will miss the app a little bit because i only used it to listen to music absolutely nothing else and it did its job well although it could not run in the back ground which i always had a gripe with

    Actually it can. Go to the YouTube app. Play video. Go out of the YouTube app. Double tap and press play.

    You can thank me later.

    Yeah, Google is a big player. But didn't they just buy up a bunch of companies and whatnot to put them selves in that "#1" spot?


    Personally, I don't care that the YouTube app is no longer integrated with iOS: I quit using it a while ago once I found out that I could watch HQ videos through the Safari mobile site.

    Yes, but if you watch a YouTube video in Safari that's ALL you're doing, you can't do anything else.

    You guys are using your phones in a more old fashioned way than I thought.

    I mean, even of they take away something like the iPod, you'll just say you never use it. On which case I wonder what you DO use on the phone....?

    The YouTube app is not needed. You can get to it the browser or you can install the YouTube app as soon as Google releases it. It is no different than Safari, if you don't want to use that you can install Chrome, or anyone of the 1000 other browsers available.

    If you feel that not having YouTube is a deal breaker then, switch to an Android device... That will still have a YouTube app

    Phone calls, text, email, rdp, Citrix, as400 connectivity, stream the radio, take notes, take pictures, take videos, play a small amount of games, Internet, Facebook, twitter, track my cycling distance, google voice, alarm clock, manage airport routers, order from Pizza Hut, deposit checks.....you know...basically nothing.

    However if I'm watching a video on YouTube, why would I do anything else? I'm watching a video, not pressing play and walking away. If a text or email comes though, I wait until the video is over.
