Apple announced iOS 6 will come without a native YouTube app upon its launch this fall, and many users on Twitter were ecstatic to hear the news.
The Cupertino, Calif., company said its license with Google to include the service has ended, but also said that YouTube would still be accessible through the Safari Web browser app, according to the Associated Press.
On top of that, Apple also said Google is working on its own version of an iOS YouTube app that will eventually hit the App Store, which many users on Twitter were happy to learn.
