Anyone know what % of Google's revenue comes from iOS ecosystem?
Any ideas or links appreciated.
@dollarsandsense My guess is it is a surprisingly high figure, and that the higher it goes the more tempted Apple will be to launch their own search engine. They need to have a very robust ad business in place first, but doing away with search and offering users a privacy-first engine seems like something they must have their eyes on long term.
@rpinvestments I could see this being an outcome, but I could also see a lot of people just being willing to use a worse search engine because it's "privacy first". I don't have much confidence one way or the other. What I do know is that the status quo results in Google being an absurdly profitable cash generative business, and I'd rather this risk didn't exist.
