I'm sure I could probably figure this out with a little searching, but I tought I'd ask the people using iOS 7 already.

The iOS 7 page on Apple's website makes several references to Bing. Is Bing the default search engine, or is it still Google? If it's Bing, is there a way to change it back to Google?

Sorry if this is a completely stupid question, but I'm genuinely curious. Thanks!

Google is default for Safari.

Siri uses Bing.

That's what I was afraid of. Any way to change her default search?

You can say.. "Search Google for blah blah" and it will work. Still not default though.

Hopefully the release version will include some way to change it since you can change it in iOS 6. Thought we were passed the days where carriers and phone makers locked you in to one search engine :P
