Apple, Google extend deal for iOS

Business Insider is reporting that Apple and Google have extended the deal that brought Google search to the iOS. In a recent interview with Charlie Rose, Google CEO Eric Schmidt mentioned that his company's arrangement with Apple has been "recently extended."

"Apple is a company we both partner and compete with. We do a search deal with them, recently extended, and we're doing all sorts of things in maps and things like that."

That should extinguish any lingering rumors that Bing will become the default search engine on future iOS devices/updates. Presently, Bing is an option on the iOS, but Google is the default.
