My YouTube app disappeared from the home screen after updating but when going to the App Store to redone load, it says open. When it hit it, it does nothing.

Only complaint though, this update is insanely fast on my air 2; I've never felt an iOS device be this fast. Multitasking app switcher lag is now gone (I have over 200 apps and when pulling down to switch to a different second app, it used to lag for a second before). Typing and scrolling also seems heavily improved; eveno Ign to a long website and zooming back to the top doesn't require redrawing the web page any more. This truly is insane performance.

Strange I've still got mine as I've read a few have had similar problem so I was intrigued to find out after I just updated.

iPhone 6, Same thing for me. I've had a lot of issues since updating. My VPN keeps toggling itself on and off, I can't accept the new iCloud terms & conditions, and settings keeps asking my for my Apple ID password but every time I enter it, the app stalls. I also can't receive email or load webpages (on wifi or cellular) but I can still receive notifications for email, which is strange. Nightshift mode works great though! :) Sorry to complain, as this isn't the right thread for this, but I am frustrated to say the least.

Same thing happened to me not only for YouTube but for other Google Apps and a few games. A hard reboot though brought them back.
