In iOS 9, you were able to copy a phone number in the phone app after holding down on the number after hitting the circle I. I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that in IOS 10. Am I going crazy or does it not allow this anymore?

From what screen in the Phone app (and what circle)?

Seems as it's no longer possible in iOS10. Best way I can find is choose to create a new contact and copy it then cancel or save.

Dammit I'm just an idiot. I didn't catch the subforum. I just saw the title in recent comments. Sorry.

Hopefully that's just an oversight/not yet implemented. It's too useful not to have.

There's a fair few things wrong in Recents and Phone contacts in general, hoping it's smoothed over over the betas.

The only way I have found to do it is to 3D Touch on the number and then you can copy it from the menu that pops up

I guess the theory is that you should just 'share contact' and pretty much any app that you would paste it in to will be in the share sheet/pop up? Just a guess as that doesn't actually work if, for example, you wanted to just paste it into notes rather than send it to someone else.
