Yesterday, I showed you how easy it is to change the default search engine in Safari on your Mac. Today, I’ll show you how to do the same on your iOS devices

  1. Touch the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down to Safari.
  3. Under the first section, “Search,” touch “Search Engine.”
  4. Pick from among:
    1. Google
    2. Yahoo
    3. Bing
    4. DuckDuckGo


Now, when you search in Safari or ask Siri to search the web for a topic, your results will be delivered by the search provider you chose.
