Security researchers have discovered Apple’s search bots indexing the web in new ways, exposing their more extensive reach.
Why do we care?
The story I’ve linked includes a security breakdown, but that’s not why I’m interested. It’s been speculated that Apple is working on a search engine – and there continues to be evidence in the field that it’s happening.
Apple adding search to its capabilities – which is certainly quite possible with the government’s investigation of anti-trust relationships around search related to Google – would be a significant development in the space.
Apple is likely to enter the search business.
