    Default Search engine on iOS9

    Hi All,

    I am wondering if someone can help me in understanding what is the default search engine on iOS 9 in the following scenarios:

    1. Upgrade existing iPhone to iPhone 6s which comes with iOS 9. All cloud settings are transferred. Will my search engine selection transfer over?

    2. New iPhone user with no previous cloud to sync. What is the default search engine selection?

    3. Upgrade old phone with new OS [i.e. iOS9]. Will Search engine be updated to the default?

    Thanks,
    Madhuri.

    OK, the default Search Engine in Safari in iOS9 is Google, and Bing if you use Siri. However, in answer to your questions:

    1) I am not 100% sure, but I your Search Engine choice should be synced as part of an iCloud backup.
    2) The default Safari search engine will be Google.
    3) If upgrading from iOS8 or lower I would have thought your default search engine will be retained.

    But to be honest, it is so easy to change this setting on an iPhone or iPad, dos it really matter?
