Apple rumored to offer Baidu search to Chinese iPhone users

Apple is reportedly lining up Baidu to join the search engines available on iOS devices when the sixth iteration of the operating system is detailed next week. Baidu serves around 80 percent of queries in the country and the move will serve Cupertino's twin goals of placing Google at arm's length and gain more traction in Asia. It's not likely to replace Mountain View's place at the top of the menu, but users will be able to make a switch in the settings menu. Whatever happens, we'll be there to catch every revelation when Tim Cook takes to the stage next week.
