Twenty Twentyone - Searchform placeholder text position

I wonder if the placeholder text "Search ..." is in the wrong place of the Twenty Twentyone theme.
Compared with all other default themes this little text is here above the input field of the search.

No. It's not in the wrong place. It's right where it's supposed to be. The fact that previous themes did something a certain way doesn't mean that future themes should also do the same.

Hey @transl8or, thanks for your feedback. we made the decision to have a visible label outside of the search field, instead of using a placeholder, to improve accessibility. Going to close this issue.
