    Thanks so much for once again deciding what I want for my iPad. I updated to version 6.0 and you very nicely decided that I would no longer want to use You Tube so it's been removed. I haven't explored everything I have (had?) on my iPad to see whether there's anything else that you have decided I no longer need. Maybe I won't bother, it's just time to retire the iPad and go with a more user friendly manufacturer. I'm sure you won't miss me, but you can be sure that I won't miss you either.

    In the "for what it's worth" department, Google has released a YouTube app in the App Store. Plus, there a tales that another app, Jasmine, is working quite well, also. Both of these apps are free to the user.

    Granted, you'll have to download them, but reviews are saying these apps are better than the old stock Apple app.

    Just so's you have all the information available before you jump ship...

    Same as Google Maps... Apple is removing everything Google from its products that it can remove. Either because their contract with Google ended (I wonder), or because they decided Google is "da enemy".

    The old Youtube app could not even do things like Search Filters, that is how limited it was. Really frustrating. I had to browse to the desktop youtube, do a proper advanced search there, and then copy the title of a video to the basic search bar of the app.

    I do not know how advanced Google's app is, but it can't be worse.

    Or because Google decided it didn't want to support iOS with voice-based turn-by-turn directions like it does on Android. Maybe Google decided Apple is "da enemy".
