How to: Access Spotlight Search in iOS 7 [GIF]

SpotlightSo I was in the Today’s iPhone GroupMe chat today, when Cam asked the simple question, “I’m right in thinking that Spotlight isn’t in iOS 7 (yet)?” to which I laughed and said that actually you can, you simply pull down from any home page. So above is a quick GIF showing the new Spotlight Search, which is super awesome looking, if I do say so myself. One of the nice things is that you don’t have to be on any specific home page to open it, it is on any home screen, whether it be the first page or the eleventh. So, for those wondering where spotlight went, there it is.

What do you think? Do you like the new way to access Spotlight? Wish it was still its own page? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    I’m wondering why you said “whether it’s the first home page or the eleventh” when you can only have nine home screens on an iPhone?

    @maeganb1971 In the name of testing, I got it up to 12 Home Screens on iOS 7. Not sure what the limit is, but I definitely had an 11th one.
