Search Settings isn’t the main look up novelty released in iOS 9. Proactive Search grabs the headlines, but you must agree that this feature is also really helpful. If you aren’t an Apple power user, you might not memorize the multitude of settings available on your smartphone or tablet. The new look-for tool simplifies everything, allowing you to easily tweak the most hidden iOS options.
How To Use iPhone Search Settings
Every time when you open Settings, on your iPhone, and aim to tweak a feature that’s not easily accessible from the Settings home screen, or you know the option’s name, but don’t know in which sub-menu it’s situated, tap on the top Search Settings field. The iOS keyboard unveils from the bottom of the screen and you can start typing the name of the characteristic that you wish to edit. With each new letter, the suggested search results adjust, until the searched item becomes available. Tap it and you’ll be redirected to the specific Settings page.
