Is it possible to disable the search bar on the main app screen on iphone? I've found that it has explicit imagery just searching for general things.

Where am I?

Hello Lyle. 

Thank you for your question. According to Apple's own support forum they recommend following these steps. 

How to Turn Off Search & Widgets on Lock Screen of iPhone

In iOS 15 or newer, turning off the locked search feature is done as follows:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on iPhone
  2. Go to “Face ID & Passcode”
  3. Scroll down and toggle “Today View and Search” to the OFF position
