I know this is possible because I keep accidentally bringing up Spotlight Search randomly when I’m using apps. Not on the Home Screen.
I’ve searched and all I can find is that you can trigger the search either from the Home Screen, with an external keyboard, or with a11y controls and that there’s no other way.
If there’s a gesture for this I’d love to know what it is because I would actually use that.

- I’ve never used an external keyboard
- I use the Apple Folio Case
- I use an Apple Pencil
- I’ve been having issues with phantom touches near the corner of the volume keys side and USB port side
- It usually happens somehow when, in landscape, my hand is near the top left of the screen but I can’t reproduce it afterwards
