How to Quickly Track Flights on iPhone Using Spotlight Search

Last May, I went to Berlin for a family vacation and I was running out of time due to heavy workload in the office. I keep checking the Flight status using flight tracker apps. Due to some unknown reasons, my flight was delayed and I managed to reach the Airport and catch my flight, thank god 🙂 At that time I was not aware that I can track the flight using my iDevice’s Spotlight search and that too in a jiffy.

iOS and macOS has a lot of hidden features in its sleeve. And one of the tracks a flight from Spotlight search on the iPhone, iPad, or Mac. That means you are not required to use any third-party apps on your iDevice. For a frequent flyer, this feature is a true blessing. If you are one of them this post is dedicated to you. Let’s check out this tiny yet life-saver feature.

Step #1. Swipe down on your iPhone or iPad screen from the middle.
