Just accidentally opened it while fumbling with my phone and realized that I have never used it.

I can understand if you have 200 apps and 10,000 songs installed on your phone, but I don't and I'm wondering how popular this actually is with people.

A poll would be appropriate, I guess.

I use it. I have 4 pages of apps so it's easier to spotlight search then search for it on my own. It's also good for searching contacts and email.

It's like a universal search for everything on your iphone, so if you're looking for a specific app, song, contact, etc, you can swipe downwards on the home screen and a search field will appear.

So it's kinda like the search function in Windows on a computer?

Rarely. Only to search contacts and email. I don't keep enough apps and shit on the phone to need to search those.

just picked up a 6, and used spotlight to find some stuff.

maybe used it twice ever on my old phone.

Used it quite a bit in digital forensics.

There was a version of IOS where deleted texts would still show in spotlight as they weren't properly cleaned during the deletion. Don't know if Apple fixed that or not yet.

I use it.

I've used it a time or 2 when I wanted to find a certain song really quick.

I use it all the time. It's often the fastest way to get to something. Give it a chance.

Why would I do that when I can ask Siri?

I've always wondered the same thing.

Never used it.
