Spotlight in iOS 7

Spotlight in iOS 7

If you’re a dev and are playing around with iOS 7, you may have noticed that spotlight, iOS’s search feature, appears to be gone in iOS 7. However, Spotlight in iOS 7 is still available. Here’s how to get to it.

On any homescreen, simply pull down on the icons. Don’t pull down from the top, since that brings down notification center. Literally place your finger anywhere below that and pull down. The motion is similar to when you are scrolling up on a webpage in Mobile Safari. Here’s a picture of what Spotlight in iOS 7 looks like.
