Search for your favorite tweets now from the top of the home page. Yes, a new Twitter search bar home tab for iOS will soon be enabled for the users. The company is excited to launch this new Twitter feature that makes the search for any tweet much easier.

At present, the Twitter application for iPhone comes with a separate search bar at the bottom of the navigation bar. However, the social network platform is set to completely alter the functionality after the implementation of an entirely newly-designed Tweet Composer tab.

So, what all changes will be seen in this new Twitter search bar home tab for iOS? Just like we love to keep the google search tab at the top of our phone’s home screen, similarly, this new search tab on Twitter will accompany the users for easy, one-click search. Though the testing is still under process for the chosen users, hopefully, the feature rolls out for everyone eventually.

The Tweet posted by Twitter Support on January 11, 2022, gives the users a visual of how this newly embedded Twitter search bar will look like. It also attached a GIF previewing the new change in the app. Have a look at the tweet below for a better understanding!

Twitter Search Bar Home Tab For iOS- What New Changes Will Be Seen?

Twitter has announced two new designs for this new testing feature bringing a new Twitter search bar home tab for iOS users. The first design has a search feature that’s identical to the one found in the Explore tab. It’ll be located at the top center end on the home tab, making the process of searching for tweets easier. 

The other design that the company has shown is a tiny circular search icon which can be found at the top right to this center search bar in the Home tab. 

The change isn’t visible in our iPhones yet. However, the official tweet displays the new Explore tab icon that is similar to the one on Mac and web applications. The new icon replaces the magnifying glass icon and is accompanied by the hashtag (#).
