Apple’s beef with Google and Android has pushed it to drop YouTube in the test versions of iOS 6 for iPhone and iPad due out this fall.
Apple released a statement Monday saying that “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 has already said it would drop Google Maps.
Google said it was working with Apple to ensure that it has “the best possible YouTube experience for iOS users.”
YouTube has been pre-loaded on Apple’s devices since the first iPhone came out in 2007 but the app was made by Apple and wasn’t fully featured. Now Google will get ad revenues out of the Apple base.
The situation may threaten Google as Apple’s default search engine.
