    I want to know who else has this and if there are any fixes for it. I already tried a hard reset.

    Remember those new spotight features? I don't have them. There are 2 new things I found in the spotlight section, the spotlight suggestions and bing results, whenever I try to tap on them they get a check mark on their side, when I search for something it seems as they don't work at all and when I come back I find them uncehcked. This has been frustrating especially since this is one of the most awaited features for iOS 8, at least in my opinion.

    If you have not already done so, you could try Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. You'll have to do a lot of re-tweaking of settings afterwards, but it might unstick whatever is stuck.

    Sorry but I don't like the surrounding issues with a lot of these new "improvements". So I have them turned OFF - one of the reasons I prefer iOS to Android. In iOS I have control. :)

    Still no luck. Maybe this is a bug.

    Possibly. I can't duplicate the problem, but since were are using different iPad models that means little.

    Heard about iOS 8.0.1 update, sounds like a rumor, and rumors doesn't say anything about any spotlight issues. Looks like a full restore is my next stop.

    The update was available for a short time and was withdrawn, because there were problems with iPhones. The next update is in progress, and will be available as soon as possible.

    There were no fixes for the spotlight feature in iOS 8.0.1, though.
