A redesigned Spotlight search screen is one of the key features in iOS 9, and Spotlight Suggestions powers this space with content from the App Store and iTunes, news sites, local businesses, and much more. Localization is key in providing a useful experience with Spotlight Suggestions, however, so the feature isn’t on by default for all regions and languages.

Apple has added support for seven more regions and languages now, though, bringing the total number of supported locations to 26. These are the latest regions to gain Spotlight Suggestions support:

  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Luxembourg
  • Malaysia
  • Philipines
  • Singapore
  • United Arab Emirates

Before the latest additions, Spotlight Suggestions has also been supported in these regions:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UK
  • USA
