Do information searches in the Google search bar

Safari Address bar w/google barSafari’s built-in Google search bar (tap the Address bar in Safari to bring it up) has the ability to give you specific information instead of Web page matches. For example, you could type in a movie name followed by your zip code (such as “Kung Fu Panda 80024”) to get local show times and nearest theaters. Other examples of useful information searches are as follows:

  • Weather forecast: “weather san 
diego” or “weather 90022”
  • Stock quotes (by symbol): “aapl”
  • Dictionary definitions: “define tome”
  • Unit conversions: “milliliters in 2 cups”
  • Currency conversions: “15 usd in euros”
