I noticed several months ago that when using my iPhone and iPad that the default search engine in Safari had changed from Google to Yahoo.  I gave Yahoo a shot but eventually decided that I wanted to move back to Google.  From iOS you have the option of Google, Yahoo or Bing.  If you want to modify the default search engine for an iOS device, such as, an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch it is very easy.

From your home screen:

  • Select Settings
  • Select Safari
  • Select Search Engine
  • Now choose from Google, Yahoo or Bing

One you have picked your favorite engine then return to Safari and give it a try.
