Google renews partnership with Apple to provide services for the iPhone
In a smartphone market where Google and Apple are both pursuing operating system dominance, it seems a bit odd that Apple's iPhone still relies on Google's search and maps services. Well, despite the rivalry between Android and iOS, both companies are actually to remain loyal partners in some business fields.

That is what became apparent yesterday after Eric Schmidt, Google's former CEO and current Executive Chairman, announced that the internet search giant has decided to continue providing services for the iPhone. Judging by Mr. Schmidt's words, it also became clear that Google is not intending to break its business partnership with Apple anytime soon. That doesn't necessarily mean that Apple has abandoned the idea of having its own mapping service in the future, but right now, there seem to be more important things on the company's agenda.
