With the release of iOS 4.2, the iPad got a convenient new menu option in Safari to search within a page for a given term. (An invaluable tool for long pages where you would otherwise have to scroll for minutes to find the one bit you’re looking for, way down near the end.) But what about the iPhone and iPod Touch?

It’s not well-known, but the pocket-sized iDevices have the same feature. It’s just hidden.

Tap the “Google” search field up in the upper right and enter your search term. Now scroll down the list of suggestions until you see the “On This Page” heading. Easy to do, but not necessarily easy to find.
