Tuesday, August 15, 2017, the Silicon Valley giant is willing to pay money of US $ 3 billion for Google search to be the default on the iPhone and iPad.
"This is a symbiotic relationship of mutualism, and Google can contribute 5 percent of Apple's total operating income this year," said Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi.
Even so, Sacconaghi predicts there will be a time when Google will stop working with Apple. Therefore, the company made Steve Jobs is expected to increase the payment each year.
Just for information, Google search became the main iPhone search engine since it was first launched. However, Apple removed YouTube and Google Maps from iOS after iOS 6 was launched.
Apple is now using Apple Maps for iPad and iPhone. Not so with search engines, which still use Google as default settings. Users can change it in Safari menu.
