Earlier today, Apple released its latest iOS firmware to the developers, iOS 6 Beta 4. The biggest change that was noticed in the beta releases was the removal of the stock YouTube app that has been part of the iOS firmware since the start. While some speculated it as a bug in the latest release, others took it as part of Apple’s plan to allow the search giant to benefit less from the hugely popular iOS running devices.
However, within hours of the release, Apple has given a statement regarding it. The Verge quotes Apple’s statement on this matter.
“Our license to include the YouTube app in iOS has ended, customers can use YouTube in the Safari browser and Google is working on a new YouTube app to be on the App Store.”
What might be the exact reason, only time will tell. Stay tuned as we bring you more on iOS 6 Beta 4.
