Apple's Spotlight search is a terrific way to find things on your iPad, especially if you have a lot of stuff loaded on it. But maybe you have too much loaded on it, or perhaps you don't find the need to search everything on your device, like your Notes or Events. Fortunately, it's easy to customize the areas that Spotlight illuminates when you search for data on the iPad. Here's how to do it:
- Tap Settings, and then General.
- Tap Spotlight Search.
- You'll see a list of all of the items that Spotlight searches. Simply tap the items you don't want to search to de-select them. That's it!
