Apple Well, this is interesting. Apple has released iOS 6 beta 4, and it removes one of the staples of iOS, included since its very first release with the first iPhone: beta 4 does not include the YouTube application. YouTube is owned by Google, so that could be an explanation. However, unless Google has its own iOS YouTube application ready, iOS 6 could lead to a lot of unhappy iPhone and iPad users. The large websites with sources inside Apple are probably hard at work trying to find out what's going on here - could just be a bug, or maybe a way to gauge public response by causing news sites and blogs to post about it. Huh. Update: thank god for sites with clout: The Verge confirms that Google is working on a stand-alone iOS YouTube application. Good news for users, since the stock one wasn't particularly good to begin with.

I am pretty sure this is a restriction on interpreted code. As far as I know as long as your code is fully compiled in your application (or given that apple reviewer don't see your interpreter), they are pretty much ok. You can compile Actionscript/Flash code for iOS (I think the restriction on interpreted code ).

Third party codec is authorized (or Skype could not have implemented their VOIP client for example).
