For all the perceived hate that Apple seems to have for Google, since the Former CEO Steve Jobs referred to Android as a stolen product and planned to go thermonuclear on Android OEM like Samsung.

It seems that the boys at Cupertino aren't all that displeased with Google as they make a sizeable amount from Google every year. Apple uses Google as the default search engine on its mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone and IPod Touch and in return gets a sizeable amount of money from Google .

This kind of search deal is not new or unique as Google also has such deals with Mozilla (Firefox), Opera, and probably OEMs like Samsung, HTC, Sony. Even though the likes of Samsung, HTC, Sony use the Android OS at no cost they are not under any obligation to use Google as the default search engine in their built-in browsers.
