Search for Developers

Make it easy for users to discover information in your apps and websites by surfacing your content in Search on iOS 9 or later. And with seamless universal linking, you can take users to the best place to view search results.

App History

Deep links make it easy for users to get back to where they were in your app — just indicate that your app is eligible for Search and iOS will create links for you.

Content Indexing

Help users find relevant information within your app by using Core Spotlight to add content to the iOS Search index.

Web Markup

Indicate the content on your website that can be accessed from your app and make that content available in Search. iOS supports flexible universal links that seamlessly take users to your website or directly into your app if they already have it installed.
