You don't typically associate Google developer events with iOS, but while Google I/O was largely about Android, there was a surprising amount of iOS discussion from the company last week.

For one, the the company announced that it's expanding app indexing (which is now a ranking signal for mobile search results) to iOS. At Google I/O, the company held a session about developing with Google on iOS.

Here's the official description for the session:

If you're an iOS developer, you might not think of looking to Google first to find the top of the line APIs and services. But Google has a lot to offer iOS developers that you may not know about. Come learn about ways we're going to make developing on iOS easier and more powerful with Google services.

The talk is presented by Google developer advocate Todd Kerpelman.

At the show, Google announced that it is extending some APIs to iOS developers via Cocapods.
