Apple is getting $1 billion annually from Google just for making Google the default search engine in iOS and on the desktop for Safari, says Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter.

Schacter believes Google generates $1.3 billion in revenue from toolbar searches on Apple gadgets. Of that, he thinks Google forks over 75% of the revenue to Apple.
