    I think he is. Sounds cool but not very likely to happen.

    Yes, i mean "spotlight" to "text".

    Nick if you could do that it would be great.

    Thanks.

    I think Apple should've thought of that in the first place.

    Default Yes please SOMEONE change the search
    I do not want to see the search ever again, doing that left swipe is such a convienient shortcut from home and it's wasted on a dopey search no one uses.
    Also single button press (when on home already) opens search, I wanna stop this too.

    Any suggestions? I'd prefer email rather than text but customisable will be nice.
