Yahoo Y logo 640It is said that Yahoo are currently talking to Apple to ensure that some of the former’s services would end up on a more prominent place on not only the hugely popular iPhone, but also on the game changing iPad as well. Both giants from the Silicon Valley have been talking to one another, where it is hoped that when an agreement is settled between the two of them, additional sports as well as news content will be loaded onto Apple devices, in an effort to expand a partnership that will make use of the voice activated assistant Siri that will bypass search while offering users information directly whenever they hold a pseudo-conversation into their handsets, at least this is what the Wall Street Journal reported earlier today.

Yahoo will also be exploring the possibility of making Web search results available to Apple, so that it will not rely so much on Google. There might be a spanner in the works though, as Yahoo’s partnership with Microsoft’s Bing search engine might be reconsidered down the road. Right now, Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer has clearly stated that the company’s top priority is to expand Yahoo’s footprint on mobile devices.
