Multiple sources are claim Apple is either going to replace Google as default search with Bing in iPhone OS 4, or at least integrate Bing into the search picture.
Look, it's just over a week until WWDC 2010 and the rumors are just going to get crazier, okay? Apple and Google have been on increasingly shaky ground as of late, with some silly comments by Google during their I/O event probably not helping matters. Whether or not this proves to be true, or any of the parties chooses to comment or dispel the rumor like Microsoft did the Visual Studio for iPhone/iPad/Mac rumor from a couple days ago, we'll just have to wait and see.
And hey, Bing powers Yahoo! which is already a search option, so if that becomes Bing in name as well, and even if it's default, it's hard to see Apple eliminating Google as a user-assignable option anyway, so for diehard Googlers it will just be one annoying settings switch away.
Real, fake, really fake, let us know what you think!
