Google has put together its annual inspirational Year in Search video, and shared some of the trending searches across the year – with Apple making the charts for both the right and wrong reasons.

On the plus side, Apple took the #1 slot in consumer electronics searches, with the iPhone 6 ahead of rival smartphones from Samsung, Google, Motorola, LG and Nokia. Apple was also the only company to make three of the top-ten searches, with the Apple Watch at #8 and iPad Air at #10 … 


The news was rather less encouraging in the top YouTube video searches, with #bendgate making ‘iPhone 6 Plus Bend Test’ the fifth most popular search.


You can enjoy a nostalgic look back at what was hot in previous years with Year in Search videos from 2013 right the way back to 2010 below.
