mapKitSearch.tintColor = nil // Tints the close, userTracking and searchBar cursor colors.
mapKitSearch.markerTintColor = nil // Tints map annotations and mapItem results.
mapKitSearch.completionEnabled = true // Enables search completions as you type.
mapKitSearch.geocodeEnabled = true // Enables geocoding when tapping on a map at street levels.
