Apple CEO, Tim Cook said Google Search Engine is the best as the default platform of the iOs users, also included that they are imposing controls in their Safari Web browser to protect the user’s data. In the interview with Axios on HBO on Sunday, Apple CEO protected billion-dollar deal with Tech giant Google as for allowing them as a default search platform on their devices.
Cook also told the representative of Axios technology, “ I think their search engine is the best. But two, look at what we’ve done with the controls. We have private web browsing, we have intelligent tracking prevention. What we’ve tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their course of the day. It’s not a perfect thing, but it goes a long way in helping”.
In 2018, as per the rumours, Google will pay Apple $9billion for remaining the default search engine for Safari Browsers of iPhone on iOs.
According to the Rod Hall, the Goldman Sachs analyst, this amount would only continue for developing in the initial stage, for being a potential leading as default search engine Google will have to pay $12billion in 2019.
Apple CEO is against the privacy policies of some renowned tech companies like Facebook. In the past, Apple also referred them as a form of “surveillance”.
Concerning the matter of regulations of tech companies, Cook said, “ while I am not a big fan of regulation, but there comes time to “admit when the free market is not working”.
Apple CEO added, “I think it’s inevitable that there will be some level of regulation. I think Congress and the administration at some point will pass something. This is not a matter of privacy versus profits or privacy versus technical innovation. That’s a false choice. Your device has incredible intelligence about you, but as a company, I don’t have to have that”.
