I am using this tag pair for a website form. Two issues I have:

  1. How do I make certain fields required without using CSS3 or jQuery. Does EE have a native way of doing this?

  2. How do I get validation to work on iOS?

  3. Are there any better third party form add ons that someone can recommend?

    CSS3? Or do you mean HTML5? You can't use CSS for this.

To my knowledge, you can't make fields required.

The more popular search add-ons are Low Search and Solspace Super Search

Both of these add-ons have validation built in, as well as obviously many other features you won't find on the native EE search form.
