  • To turn off auto-suggested websites and search terms, open Settings and tap Safari.

  

Toggle Search Engine Suggestions and Safari Suggestions to off. Search Engine Suggestions allows your search engine to auto-fill your search queries and Safari Suggestions will show you web results it thinks are related to your query

Now Safari won't auto-suggest search terms and search results and you can use search that much more to your liking.
