Like its OS X brethren, Spotlight has been updated in iOS 8 to be more intelligent. As it stands now, Spotlight is pretty bland, dumb and can only search for apps and content stored directly on your device.
In iOS 8, Spotlight can provide live search suggestions for apps, Wikipedia entries, movies, songs from iTunes radio, news and more. It’s a much more powerful way to perform smart searches on iOS.
Prior to iOS 8, Spotlight would not perform live searches out on the web to update you with dynamic search suggestions. Taking the cue from OS X Yosemite, Spotlight just go a whole lot more useful in iOS. What do you think about Spotlight in iOS 8?
