Spotlight Search for iOS now has the ability to perform currency calculations and conversions using up to date exchange rates.This is a handy built-in feature for travelers, anyone who needs to exchange money, and those who work across borders, and it’s built right into the latest versions of Spotlight for iOS on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Getting Currency Conversions in iOS with Spotlight Search
To convert any currency, open Spotlight from the Home Screen of iOS by pulling down on an icon, then enter the following syntax types, specifying the currency to start with and to convert to:
1 USD to EUR
1 USD to GBP




500 CAD to USD

100 RMB to USD

500 EUR to JPY

This is just an example, as any major world currency is supported for conversions in iOS.

You can specify the three letter shorthand for the currency, which is the fastest method, or if you aren’t sure, you can actually type out the entire currency name as well, like so:

1 US dollar to Japanese Yen
15 Euros to Great British Pound

19585 Indonesian Rupiah to US dollars

100 Australian Dollars to Vietnamese Dong

1000 US dollars to Apple Store Apples

850 Chinese Renminbi to Korean Won
