This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips discusses topics across the investing world.

In China, Apple is reportedly switching the iOS search provider to Baidu, which dominates more than 80% of the Chinese search market. While this is an obvious move, there are some indicators investors should follow in both countries outside China, and within the United States. As consumers migrate from desktop platforms to mobile ones, Jeremy believes the default providers will have a leg up on the competition.

Apple's rise in China isn't a new story, but there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend. We already know many of the largest players well, but some of the best ways to play this shift are still under the radar.
