Apple Showing Signs It May Soon Launch a Search Engine to Compete Against Google Search

Changes in Spotlight Search on iOS and iPadOS 14 beta, a significant update to its Applebot support page, and an increase in crawling from AppleBot signify that Apple may be launching a search engine soon.

Some of the points Jon brings up include

  • Apple is pouring resources and money into search as seen in their hiring spree for search engineers
  • iOS and iPadOS 14 beta bypasses Google Search with Spotlight Search
  • In July Apple updated its Applebot web crawler page
  • AppleBot has been busy crawling sites

Today we saw that Apple Maps is going to Get Native Ratings System and Photo Uploads for Places of Interest. Exciting times ahead.
