Google pays very dearly for that, btw





Which is another way of saying Apple values money over users being protected from something terrible.

Then again, I don't think defaulting to an inferior product is an obvious upside for the average user. I reckon the average user is more interested in a more robust search function when they're actually trying to get things done.

I think Apple values the user perception that Google is the best search engine. Note how they used Bing for Siri and Spotlight search (and they've been largely, if not entirely, replacing that with Siri Knowledge instead).
