Google is synonymous with 'online search' for billions of people, but there are big chances that its hegemony will slowly be put under pressure. A few days back, we've see Mozilla replace Google with Yahoo as the default search engine and now it seems that Apple itself could do the same thing.
A fresh report coming from TheInformation publication says that Google risks losing its spot as the default search provider in Apple's Safari browser next year. Here's what Amir Efrati has been saying:
Google Search has been in the hands of iPhone and iPad owners since 2007, but this deal is now set to expire in 2015. Microsoft and Yahoo have each pitched Apple SVP Eddy Cue on the idea of replacing Google as the default iOS search provider.
Microsoft's Bing is already the search provider used by Siri and OS X Yosemite and its Spotlight search deliver Bing results. These could be signs that Apple is looking to replace Google or just that it wants its customers to have a diversity of choices.
Obviously, the company that manages to replace Google will be making a fortune, since it will offer its service to millions of iPhone and iPad users.
