A quick question about the search box that has appeared on my iPhone home screen?
For some reason, a search box has appeared on my home screen and I don't know where it has come from. The box is just under the wi fi indicator on the left of the screen and just above the first row of app icons on the home screen. When I double tap the box I get the normal sound to write in the space provided but no keypad appears. Also, I'm not sure if this search box appears anywhere else i.e. once I've entered into an app.
Does anyone know what this search box is, where it comes from and how to get rid of it. It doesn't cause any problems but it is quite annoying when you hear 'search' everytime you open or close an app. I have never had this before and I'm just interested about where it came from and how I can get rid of it.
I have an iPhone 6, 64Gb memory and running the latest IOS.
