    Dumb Question...how do you add a place from Apple Maps to your Contacts?

    I thought I looked everywhere, but I probably missed it. How do you add a contact from Apple Maps to my contacts?

    Disappeared Siri Contact Suggestions when Sharing

    Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I no longer have contact suggestions in my share sheet. I verified that Settings > Siri & Search > Suggestions when Sharing is toggled on. Curious if it’s a known bug in the new update. This is happening on both my iPhone and iPad.
