In the latest iOS 6 B4 firmware, Apple has dropped the YouTube app in the system software. Apple has also confirmed that YouTube will no longer exist in the final iOS 6 build. However, there's no need to worry. Google is actively working on a YouTube application on the App Store. iOS devices running below 6.0 will continue to have YouTube built in.
