No more default YouTube app in iOS6? No big deal

According to current iOS 6 beta, Apple no longer provide the default YouTube application. After Maps being replaced by Apple’s own version, we all think that Apple is declaring war to Google. Maybe. But I see it differently. Here is why.

First, the web-based version of YouTube is nearly as good as the native version IMHO. Second, Google will provide a native version anyway that users will be able to download from the AppStore. Google will then be able to add new features to YouTube without having to wait for Apple to release a new iOS release. The same will happen to Google’s version of Maps.

I guess Apple think that core applications doesn’t include YouTube anymore. I agree with this direction.
