    Why Apply does not have own search engine?
    Microsoft has bing,
    Google has google search,
    Yahoo has yahoo search.
    why no "Apple search"?

    Because Microsoft (Bing), Google, and Yahoo are all software companies - whereas Apple is a hardware company.

    They don't make software; they run software.

    Is an Apple search engine a far-fetched idea? Maybe not. In a 2013 Seeking Alpha article Kevin Fulton said he thought an Apple search engine would be the company’s “next big thing” (though, of course, five years later, this still hasn’t happened). He said that Apple has been bolstering its technology portfolio in preparation for the day when it becomes independent from Google.

    Fulton said that, rather than competing directly with Google’s broad search capabilities, he thinks Apple will personalize its search offering.

    “The search engine will use machine learning and restrict the information only to relevant sources that the user trusts,” he adds. “It will be location and circle of influence based. Apple will implement its personalized search ability across the iOS ecosystem by integrating the improved Siri into apps and having loadable native commands to run those apps by voice.”

    I’m not convinced that we'll see Apple Search. However, I’m not as sure as I once was that we won’t.

    there was specific laws made designed to target companys running search engines.
    there was some jostling for position as anti-trust laws were being raised by companys that wanted to try and make more money.

    apple created their market position by being number 1 among people who used technical software anddidnt like the closed system of ibm as it was being captured by microsoft.

    by remaining out-of-the-market of search engines, apple have managed to stay clear of all the negative associations around anti-trust issues.

    apple have market dominance with computers now as portable devices and have total control of the market for search engines access to those users.
    they need not waste their time, money or market position to build their own when they can simply sit back and wait for the market to regulate its self as a third party user.

    they keep their hands clean and dont enter the social arguement of what is right and what is wrong for a search angine and how it sells advertising etc.
