iOS Brave browser displays Google as a Quick-search option, however, it is not possible to disable in Settings.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

Seems like we have an update in just a couple weeks that will likely resolve this issue (along with several others). Can’t find an issue logged for it but I’ll dig around for one and drop it in this thread if I find it. Thank you for reporting!
