Generally in iOS apps, tapping the status bar (clock) scrolls to the very top. In the SE app it scrolls to the top of the content, but does not include the search bar. You still need to drag further to reveal that.

This inconsistency may lead users to miss the fact of the search bar's existence in the first place.

This is on the main site page, where you could for instance search a tag or change sorting.
