Newest iPhones will not have YouTube
Apple Inc. (AAPL) said Google Inc. (GOOG)’s YouTube won’t be included in the next version of the software used in the iPhone and iPad, the latest evidence of escalating competition between the two companies.
Apple has featured YouTube as a core application since the iPhone debuted in 2007. As Google has pushed into the market with its Android software — now the most-used smartphone operating system — the relationship between the two companies frayed. Apple also plans to replace Google’s maps application with its own in the next iOS release.
