    Hello,

    I have an intermittent issue with the Spotlight Search; it doesn't return any results regardless of what I'm searching for. Restart the phone resolves the issue for a while, the search results become slow (3 to 6 seconds) and eventually it stop returning any results.

    The phone was reset and restored from backup at the beginning of December (before 10.2); the issues started with 10.2.

    Anyone else having the same issue? Anyone know how to fix it?

    I deactivated all the options in the Spotlight Search settings, restarted and turned them back on.

    Thanks,

    (iPhone 6S)

    Server issue. Just ignore it and it will come back to normal eventually.

    Thanks for your reply; how is a server issue affecting the Spotlight Search results when the apps I'm searching for, are installed on my phone?

    Also, restarting the phone fixes the issue for a day or 2, but gradually gets slower and then stops listing the apps I'm searching for.
