As a growing competitive rivalry flairs up between Apple and YouTube, the evidence can be seen in the planning for the next upgrade for Apple’s iPad and iPhone software. YouTube has been a staple in the software programs of Apple’s products since 2007 and now it will be no longer included. Additionally the Google map feature is rumored to soon be replaced with Apple’s own version.

The unveiling of the latest iPhone will take place September 12th according to rumors and then the newest software will be available for all to see. Of course even without YouTube included in the software it will be possible for iPhone users to still use the service they will just need the app or the Web browser in order to use the site.
