    In ios 6 swipe right brings up search. In ios 7 there is nothing in that space. Do you think apple is saving it for features to come? Or to simplify?

    I think it would be cool if some sort pulse app live feed would be created for that space. Supported apps would have a live space in a list. And scroll to right in that space to see more "posts" or content. Like news, flickr or facebook updates.

    What do you think will happen with old search space and what would you like to see there?

    There is no old search space, nothing happens if you swipe right.

    I hope they use that for a flip board type thing.

    From the brief time I used iOS 7 on my iPhone, I recall that swiping to the right doesn't do anything, and Spotlight is accessed by "pulling down" the screen (swiping down anywhere below the NCenter swipe area)

    Don't care what they use it for.

    They NEED to bring back "Search the Web" in the spotlight search. I used that so much.

    We know that. He however is hoping Apple will use that space for a news aggregator.

    For you maybe.

    I will complain more if its not included in the GM, but IMO it was completely pointless to remove that feature. Can't think of one good reason.

    Will you? Okay, hope they pay attention to you over the other Whatever-it-is-hundred-million other customers. All the best with that.
