Access Obsidian notes via Spotlight search (iOS/iPadOS)

Use case or problem

Many iOS apps allows you to search for and open their files via the home screen Spotlight search. This can speed up finding and opening a file by quite a lot (for instance, no need to find and open to respective app first).

As of now this feature seems to not be implemented for Obsidian.

(Though, yes, Obsidian’s files do appear if you search for them in Spotlight, but this is via the Files app, not via Obsidian; If you “click” them they don’t open in Obsidian but some other built-in plaintext viewer)

Proposed solution

Allow iOS Spotlight to search within Obsidian and open files
