Apple (AAPL), on Monday, released new iOS 6 beta 4 (10A5376e), promising to remove the dedicated YouTube app that has been staple in iOS since the launch of the iPhone in 2007.
That said; the licensing deal company had with Google “has ended, but users can still use YouTube via the Safari web app.” Google, however, has reportedly added support for HTML5 to YouTube, allowing users to stream videos using any web browser — no Flash needed.
The reports also suggest that Google is apparently working on a standalone app which will be available from the App Store soon.
Though the YouTube app “would remain on iOS 5 and older,” according to a recent report.
Obviously, the latest beta brings a lot of little fixes, and a handful of new features.
The latest beta of iOS 6 was released to developers as an over-the-air (OTA) download. And the iOS6 beta4 (10A5376e) for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is up for grabs. The paid developers can head over to the developer.apple.com, via Apple’s developer portal to grab the latest beta. Or just head over to Settings >General >Software Update, if you got the OTA push.
