Apple's pre-launch iPhone surprises keep rolling out. On Wednesday the company announced that the combination iPod and smartphone will support YouTube when it ships on June 29. Apple TV owners, however, don't have to wait another week: Apple also announced that YouTube video content is now available on the home media device.
The iPhone will include an Apple-designed application that streams YouTube content over Wi-Fi and EDGE data networks. Apple TV users can browse and stream YouTube content, as well as log in to their YouTube account to view and save videos.
While it appears that the iPhone will ship with its YouTube viewer application, Apple TV owners will need to use the device's built-in software update feature before accessing the new content.
Apple and YouTube claim that over 10,000 videos have already been encoded in the H.264 file format necessary for viewing on the two devices. More videos will be available in the new format each week, and the entire YouTube library conversion should be completed this fall.
