Sprint today confirmed reports that a minor system update being distributed to the Samsung Galaxy S III device deactivates one of the features. "The new software update does disable the universal search function on Galaxy S III," said a Sprint spokesperson to Phone Scoop via email. The update also included a security patch. The universal search function is one of the features behind the Apple-Samsung lawsuit patents. It allows device owners to search not only the web, but also the device itself for items from a single search bar. Apple holds a patent for this feature. Sprint said Samsung, not Sprint, was responsible for removing universal search from the Galaxy S III.
