iPhone 4G: Google will no longer appear on OS 4.0 search

By Alan Ng - Apr 12, 2010

Some interesting news to bring you now, as it has been reported that Apple has removed a long standing feature within their iPhone OS, which will no longer be available when iPhone OS 4.0 rolls out this Summer.

As reported from Apple Insider, iPhone owners are currently used to seeing a Google search option when using the keyboard online during a web search.

It is located in the bottom right-hand side of your keyboard, but we understand that Apple will now replace this with ‘Search’, removing the Google branding all together.

Apple Insider hints that this may be due to a pending agreement with Microsoft and their Bing search engine, so we will have to wait and see if this develops further.

Let us know your thoughts on this change.

    I think Google is a better search engine than Bing.

  • ya the guy who wrote this probably either is too dumb to understand it or doesn't have an iphone.

    its no different then your web browser on your pc where you can change the search engine.

    This would be a stupid addition to all other things that need to be done. It's not a Google search button it's a search engine search button. If you go to the settings for safari you can change the search engine to Yahoo! and then the button says "Yahoo!" in the button. I really don't believe this is an actual update because people knowing what they are talking about wouldn't post such stupidity.
