Apple did quite a bit today bringing its iPhone OS up to feature parity (and sometimes beyond) when compared with other modern smartphone platforms, and here's one piece not discussed today that we've been long wanting: web and Wikipedia search directly from Spotlight. WebOS
and Windows Phone 7
have had it since inception, and Android's had it since Donut
, and we're pretty happy to say that our OS 4.0-equipped iPhone
is now also among the ranks, just 13 months after it first got a search bar
. There you have it, folks, iPhone Spotlight is now useful.
