    Before I go totally nuts, can anyone help me. Spotlight search is not showing up when I drag down from any screen. Really need a search feature. I checked all settings and they are correct.

    Have you tried rebooting your phone?

    If you're running iOS 9 beta, there will be times when it doesn't work properly.

    I'm not running a beta and it has done this on every software version released on my iPhone 6. This is actually a replacement phone from an unrelated issue and it does it. When I swipe down periodically I will type what I want to search but I have no search options. Verified all settings. I've just dealt with it.

    I don't know what to tell you except to restore and set up as new. I've only encountered it not working periodically while in beta form.

    Reboot and possibly a hard reset. Hold down Home and Sleep/Wake button until the screen shuts off, then wait a second and power it back on.

    That's not really the fix I was looking for considering it's done it on my last two iPhone 6's. But it's not a deal breaker. I just deal with it. I enjoy the phone otherwise.

    Thanks.

    I figured it out. You have to pull down from the middle of the screen not the very top.
