Apple search engine rumors revived as it may be looking to stop relying on Google Apple logo

Rumors persisted that Apple has been developing its own search engine to replace Google on its devices, but those efforts might be ramping up  – just as Google is facing potential anti-trust actions by the US Department of Justice.

Apple is likely to have been working on this search engine for years, according to a Financial Times report citing key hirings and software hints as evidence that is more suggestive than conclusive.
