Baidu to Share Revenue With Apple After China IPhone Search Deal

Baidu Inc. said Apple Inc. will be entitled to a share of advertising sales after the Chinese company’s search engine was added as part of a software upgrade for iPhones in China.

The revenue-sharing agreement with Apple follows similar accords between Baidu and manufacturers of handsets that use Google Inc.’s Android operating system, Wang Jing, vice president at Beijing-based Baidu, said in a phone interview yesterday. He declined to disclose the commercial terms.
