    I know its prolly something easy I am missing but I dont know how to access the spotlight search.

    Spotlight Search: Spotlight, which allows users to open apps and locate both files and information, can now be accessed by swiping downwards on any app page. Previously, it had a dedicated screen that was accessed by swiping left on the home screen.

    The above instruction is from the MR site but its not working for me. Neither is the go back gesture...

    Go Back Gesture: There's a new system-wide gesture that can be used to go back to the previous window, which is especially useful in Safari. Swipe to the right from the very left edge of the screen to use the gesture.

    Any ideas?

    to get spotlight search just pull down from any screen from in the middle.

    yes there is a new gesture for imessage and safari. if you swipe from the side bezel to the right the page goes back. if you swipe from the right bezel to the left the page goes foward (only in safari).

    Pulling down isnt working for me...it just shows the notification center...and swiping in safari doesnt work either

    ----------

    CORRECTION...swiping in safari now works but still no luck with spotlight

    Don't swipe from the top, swipe down around the middle of the screen

    OK...when it said swipe down on any app page I thought it meant within any app...maybe add in swipe from your desktop would help the intellectually challenged like me...

    i think that means any native ios app that has a search bar i.e: notes and contacts
