    This is a pet peeve I noticed today.
    From my iPhone 6, when in the App Store, and I want to search, I click the search icon. Then I have to click IN the search field.
    If there is text in that field already, I have to delete it, prior to performing a search.

    Since I clicked on the search button, why not merely place my cursor in that field, and have the field empty, and keyboard showing ready to type?
    Am I missing something?

    That is a good suggestion. I think that someone should send it in to Apple. It is an annoyance to have to clear the text before doing a search.

    This was annoying me today as well, and also today the search of a specific named app was running slowly.

    I don't do all that. When I search in the App Store, I enter my search, then tap the go button in the bottom right corner of the keyboard. I don't do all the clicking in the field, unless I see what I want.

    When I check for updates in App Store.

    Maybe because first it opens up in Featured?

    I don't see that page on my iP 5.
