In the next version of Apple software's for iPhone and iPad, google Inc's YouTube won't be included said Apple Inc. Since Google's entry into the smartphone market, the relationship between the two companies have strained due to the escalating competition. Android software by Google has taken the smartphone market by storm becoming the world's largest smartphone operating system. In the next iOS release Apple also plans to replace Google's maps application with its own.
An Apple spokeswoman, Trudy Muller said that a 5 year license that allowed the company to include YouTube has expired as a result of which the YouTube app won't be pre-installed on future iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch or even when a user downloads iOS 6 to existing devices, the app would not be provided and users will have to download the app from the App Store. This change has however not had a favorable response from the masses. Muller said, "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." However YouTube refrained from saying anything specifically about its disappearance from iOS6 but in a statement issued by Google said, "We are working with Apple to ensure we have the best possible YouTube experience for iOS users."
