Clear, Delete Search String In iPhone Spotlight Search Results Automatically After Selecting Search Result

iOS and Android have a very cool and common feature of search. Known as Spotlight search in iPhone, the feature has been enhanced by Apple over time and is now an essential part of the iOS. When you enter a keyword, it searches the same in the notes, contacts etc of the iPhone itself first and also lets you find the same keyword on the web and Wikipedia.


We all agree that this feature is really helpful for users at times when you are not able find something you remember and then you type in in the search bar and here it is, in the search results. But the problem arises as the search feature starts piling up all your previous search input history.

This does make things messy as one would like to see it all empty every time he or she wishes to search something new. Apple does not provide any feature which would clear the search history but if you have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch then you can do it with last efforts.


From Cydia you can download a small tweak called as ClearSpotlight and install it. After you have installed it respring your iDevice and the tweak will start working on its own. Interestingly one does not have to pres any button to clear the spotlight search history, neither does the tweak put any icon on the homescreen nor does it have any settings.

How it works? Well every time you search something and close the spotlight, the app will automatically delete the search input and the history. it means that you literally don’t have to make any efforts and in case you want the stock feature back, then you can obviously remove the tweak from Cydia.

App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Conclusion: The tweak is nice and works well but I guess some might find it inconvenient.
