Algolia is built for search as-you-type, which means that by default, when a user searches for ipho, we’ll try to match all the objects that have the prefix ipho, like iphone.
You can modify this behavior with the settings queryType:
- prefixLast: only the last query word is interpreted as a prefix (default behavior).
- prefixAll: all query words are interpreted as prefixes.
- prefixNone: no query word is interpreted as a prefix. This option is not recommended, because it breaks the “as-you-type” experience.
