The iOS Settings search field

Software

I keep hearing podcasters advising us to use the Settings search field, in lieu of navigating multiple levels of menus. It’s easier, it’s faster, it slices and dices!

These were some I tried:

  • 24, to change the time to 24 hour time
  • IMEI, to get the IMEI number
  • Font, to change the font size
  • Gargh, to find anything

None worked. Anyone use this? Am I holding it wrong?
