News Summary: YouTube offers new iPhone app

NEW APP: YouTube is being reprogrammed for the iPhone and iPad, with a new app from Google.

THE BACKDROP: The changes are being made because Google Inc. and Apple Inc. didn't renew a five-year licensing agreement that established YouTube's video service as one of the built-in applications in the operating system that runs the iPhone and iPad.

WHAT THIS MEANS: YouTube is being bumped from the menu of pre-installed apps on the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, which could be released as early as Wednesday when the latest iPhone is expected to be unveiled.
