CSSearchable protocol defines methods that a delegate object or an app extension can use to handle communication from the on-device index. Apps that are long-running or that perform batch updates to the index should implement the required methods of this protocol in either a delegate object or an app extension.
The index delegate methods are called when there is an issue with the index and more information is needed from an app. For example, the methods can be called when the entire index is lost or there was a failure to process data for some identifiers.
