As the iPhone 5 release date approaches, details are emerging about the upcoming 6th generation model. Apparently there will be some significant app changes with the new iPhone, since Apple is not renewing their contract with Google.
An article at Technewsaurus.com says "Apple will drop the default YouTube application in the upcoming operating system." iPhone users need not fret since they "can still view YouTube from the phone browser," or download the YouTube app directly to the handset. Additional rumors say Apple has plans to use their own maps program with iOS 6, so that means Google Maps would no longer be an integrated part of the iPhone on future models, if the rumors are true.
So why the change? Sources say "Apple and Google are slowly pulling away from each other," so consumers will probably see less Google on the new Apple iPhone 5. Of course some of these rumors may be off, but it's always nice to be ready for changes ahead of time.
Do you think Apple is eliminating Google integration for the upcoming iPhone 5 release date? Will the device still have the same popularity for consumers without Google already setup on the handset?
