When I'm on the desktop and swiping to go between my "desktops" or "pages" if you will, I somehow make a swipe motion that brings down the "search iPhone" option.

Any way to disable this option? Who even uses "search iphone"?

Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks

I've never had that issue.
I use the search function.
I don't know how to disable it.

This would have been great for the "stupid questions" thread. Just sayin'.

Your post would've been great in the "I have so much time in my life that I'm going to post this ridiculous worthless unhelpful comment in a thread that I think is stupid". :)

never happened to me, I dont know how or why it's happening to you because even when I try to do a "diagonal" swipe it still doesn't do it, I even incline to a almost downward but still diagonal swipe and it still moves the pages fine. Only when I do a straight downward swipe does it bring down the search.

If you swipe down it brings the Search iPhone feature up. When you are swiping left to right you might be moving down a bit. I am sure you will get used to the gestures soon.

I agree, hate it (always have) wish I could disable it. (one thing I miss about jailbreaking)

The only way this happens is if your swipe is more vertical than horizontal. Even an arc that ends vertically won't trigger it.

Sorry, Spotlight Search does not have an option to be turned off. You can disable certain things from being searched through Spotlight Search (i.e. Contacts, Music, Notes, etc.), but that's about it.

Perhaps you're accidentally activating Spotlight Search by swiping diagonally across the screen? Seems to me that might be what's happening to you.

When I try to duplicate it on purpose, it doesn't do it but it happens when I'm just using my phone as normal. Grrr. Alright I'll get used to I guess.

I never have this problem too. Besides, I use Spotlight A LOT since upgrading to iOS 7. I never used it on iOS 6.:rolleyes:

This coming from the same guy who think Apple is false advertising their storage space because the OS takes up some of it. Riiiiiiiight!

I don't even know how you can do this by mistake.
