The latest beta of iOS 6 came without a YouTube app, which Apple explains was removed because its licensing deal with Google over the app had ended.
Don't fret just yet. It's not the same situation as when Apple chose to abandon Google Maps with iOS 6. Apple's confirmed that Google's working on a new YouTube app for iOS 6.
Those remaining on iOS 5 will continue to be able to use the older YouTube app. It's still not clear at this point whether or not iOS 5 users will be able to upgrade to the newer YouTube app that's incoming.
So far, Apple's been tight-lipped about giving any new details for the new app. Google and YouTube aren't saying much easier. The only comment that a YouTube spokesperson offered to Engadget regarding the app was the following: ""We are working with Apple to ensure we have the best possible YouTube experience for iOS users."
New details are sure to surface closer to the fall, when iOS 6 is expected to launch.
