Apple drops Microsoft's Bing in favor of Google for Siri web search results on iOS
According to Microsoft, web image results from Siri will still come from Bing, while web links and video results will now use Google's search engine. It's unclear whether or not this agreement is part of the $3 billion deal that Google has in place to keep its default search engine on iOS.
In the same piece of news, Apple announced that Spotlight on Mac will also use Google's search instead of Bing going forward, so there's that.
Apple stated that the changes announced today have been made to “allow these services to have a consistent web search experience with the default in Safari,” and has nothing to do with the relationships with Google and Microsoft.
Bing will still remain an option for Siri web search results on iOS, just that it won't be the default search engine starting this week.
