Reports from Apple and Google claim that there won’t be YouTube app as default equipment in the next generation of iPhone, or any other i–devices with iOS6 operation system from apple, which makes people recall of the fracas between the two companies to be one of the reasons. The next iPhone which is said to schedule for release in fall this year, will for the first time not include a built-in YouTube client. However, it is said that the update version of iOS5 won’t exclude this app from YouTube.
“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,” Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Macworld.
Many people are trying to figure out the reasons for such deed from Apple, since Apple and Google have been in a subtle and cooperation relationship for years. But as Google’s promotion of its own Android smartphone-Nexus, etc. which is thought to be copycat of iPhone, and the fracas over the years leads to the breakup.
In addition, Apple also removed the Google Map app from i-devices as well. People said Apple need no help from Google.
