Apple worked on a competing Google search engine. Today’s news suggests that rumors reflect the truth. Changes to Spotlight Search in versions iOS and iPadOS 14 Beta, an increase in AppleBot scanning and updates on the Applebot support page indicate that Apple will soon launch a search engine.
The Apple search engine could put Google in trouble!
In recent years, it has become known that Google paid Apple billions of dollars to provide iOS, iPadOS and macOS as the default search engine on Safari. Thus, Google allows all engines to move through their services if users do not change search engines manually. Among rumors that the contract between Apple and Google may be terminated in the near future.
On the other hand, despite the fact that Apple is the winner of the contract with Google, it can revise this contract and become a competitor to the search engine. Let me remind millions of users and millions of active Safari browsers to do this.

Another confirmation of the new search engine was that Apple has recently made new purchases in the groups AI (artificial intelligence), ML (machine learning) and NLP (neurological programming).
When viewing records from the WorldBot side, it was found that the robot.txt rules are extended, the search order, and information about how web search results are organized. Among the details that Apple began to develop on the frontend side.
