Google will pay about 742 million euros per year to Apple to position its search engine as the default operating system on devices with iOS.
In the report “The next Google is Google“, the analyst Scott Devitt at Morgan Stanley, points out that Apple and Google have made an agreement for a “fee per device, including iPhone and iPad” instead of a sharing agreement of revenue in order to simplify the accounting and allow Apple to receive advance payments.
This annual payment offers the company a good cash flow that requires little effort for the company, says the site “Business Insider“.
Apple saw 13 billion dollars (9660 million) profit in its last fiscal quarter.
