In storyboard, drag a search bar from the object library onto your view controller. Hook it up in your .h file as an outlet. You also need to conform to the UISearchBar delegate protocol (put <UISearchBarDelegate> after the subclass name in your .h). In view did load, set your view controller as the search bars delegate (something like self.searchBar.delegate = self;) and implement whichever delegate methods you want to use. They can be found here
