New Bing logoWithin a week of releasing three new Windows phone apps, Bing announced a series of updates for its iPhone app, including a search widget to help with navigation, new image tiles, and a shake feature to see what stories are trending.

According to the announcement, the new Bing iPhone app search widget has four buttons, allowing users to: return to the homepage, do a voice search, perform a text search, or view recent searches.

Bing’s iPhone app also now lets users do multiple searches, and manage recent searches from the “Recent” page:

Swipe a tile off the screen if it’s no longer relevant, open a new one to do a new search, or close them all.
