iOS 6 beta 4 is available to developers, no more YouTube?

A few weeks after iOS 6 beta 3 was released, Apple is now beginning to roll out beta 4 to developers. iOS 6 is getting closer and closer to release, so this version should be a little more like what we will see in the final release coming in “fall.” If you are already running an iOS 6 beta, you can easily update your device via the usual Settings > General > Software Update location. However, if you are on a jailbreak you can be sure this probably will break it, but I’m sure the dev-team will update their software to support this on the A4 devices very soon (remember, no official iOS 6 jailbreak will be released until the public release, as usual).

The change log shows a plethora of fixes, including updates to Facebook integration, Address Book, authorization, Dictionary, iTunes, Maps, YouTube (or lack thereof) and more. This biggest notable change is the exclusion of a dedicated YouTube application. That’s right, there is no more standalone YouTube application in iOS 6 as of beta 4. This probably is stemming from the fact that Apple seems to be cutting most of its ties with the Mountain View company, which began with the switch from Google Maps to “Apple Maps.” After YouTube though, there isn’t much left to cut.

What do you think? Noticed any bigger changes in beta 4? Are you disappointed there will no more YouTube dedicated app? Let us know in the comments.

    The YouTube app sucks anyways. Hopefully Google releases a YouTube app that works in the App Store once iOS 6 is officially released.
