Force YouTube Links On iPhone To Open Up In Safari

The default YouTube app on iPhone hasn't received an update since it was originally released. In fact, the new, mobile version of YouTube is more feature-rich and faster than its app counterpart. If you're sick of your iPhone always opening up the app instead of the mobile page, Mac OS X Hints has a simple way to stop it from happening.

Since you can't delete the stock apps from iOS, you have to block them from opening. This is done by setting up a restriction. Tap Settings > General > Restrictions. Flip the YouTube slider to off. Now the YouTube icon will disappear and any time you want to load up a video it will will stay in your browser, no app required.
