Google launches new YouTube app before being ousted from the iPhone 5

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:35PM EST

Apple (AAPL) may not want YouTube as one of its core iOS 6 apps, but that hasn’t stopped Google (GOOG) from putting up its own version of the YouTube iOS app up on the App Store for free download. As 9to5Mac notes, the new app has been released just one day before Apple’s grand iPhone 5 unveiling and has a lot of new features that the old YouTube iOS lacked, including Facebook and Google+ integration, voice search and query auto-complete. The new app will also feature “tens of thousands” of videos that were not available on the previous version of the app.
