Apple is refuting Eric Schmidt's hint that Google had submitted a Google Now app for approval. Schmidt had commented earlier today about whether Google Now would be coming to iOS devices. "You'll need to discuss that with Apple. Apple has a policy of approving or disapproving apps that are submitted into its store, and some of the apps we make they approve and some of them they don't."
While his comment seemed to indicate that Google had submitted an app to Apple, Apple says that this isn't the case. Apple confirmed that no Google Now app has been submitted for approval as of yet. Previously rumors swirled that Apple was delaying the approval of, or rejecting completely, a Google Maps app.
We'll have to hear what Google has to say about what Schmidt meant. For now, it appears that Google Now is not confirmed to be coming to iOS.
