Google and its merry band of features has slowly but surely been making its way onto iOS be it in the company’s actual app or other integrated features.  One that was announced today is the company’s Google Instant search can now be accessed on iOS.

Via Google’s Blog:

Like the desktop version of Google Instant, when you type on your mobile device you’ll see predictions of what you might be searching for. If you type [anse], for example, you should see [ansel adams] along with other predictions. Results for the first prediction appear automatically, and tapping on the other predictions will display those results. Pressing the enter key or the search button skips the predictions and will display results for exactly what you’ve typed. Check out our demo video:

Currently it’s available on Android 2.2 and above and for the iPhone/iPod you’ll need at least iOS 4.0+ and other devices should start to follow.  It’s only available in the US for right now, but should start rolling out across the globe in the coming weeks.
