For the remaining 85% of you who have yet to upgrade to iOS 6 and yet have a strong affinity towards YouTube on your mobile device, fret not. A YouTube representative did mention that they will continue to serve YouTube videos to older devices, never mind the fact that the YouTube app no longer arrives with a pre-installed status in iOS 6. You are still able to go through the selection of videos from within the old app, which interestingly enough, will be ad-free for a more fluid browsing and viewing experience.
Folks who do not want to make the upgrade to iOS 6 need not download the new YouTube app unless that is their desire. Still, this comes across as expected for YouTube to continue offering support for the old app, where perhaps there is the possibility that such support was part of the original agreement between Apple and Google who obviously, when approached, neither would divulge details concerning the partnership. Would you still want to get the latest version of YouTube regardless?
