Does iOS no longer recall recently used contacts?

    When I forward a text and I start to type the name in, I used to only have to type one letter and the most recently used contact starting with that letter would come up. Now I have to literally type out the entire name. Please tell me this is just a glitch.

    I have the exact same issues with mail on iOS 10.3.2!

    Yeah, what is the deal with that? Are they actively trying to make iOS worse?

    Works fine for me in iOS 10.3.2, just as it has in earlier versions of iOS 10.

    Or, as has been the case more often, there are some glitches or oddities that some people run into here and there (as is the case with any iOS version, or really any OS in general).

    Yes, their goal is to try to annoy you as much as possible :)

    You're going to have to be a little more specific. When you say works "fine", do you mean that it works just as well as it did in iOS 8 when you type the first letter of a contact it brings up the most recently used name?

    That's correct. After a type a letter, about half a second or so later it brings up recently used contacts that would match, just as it did before.

    Interesting, I can't possibly imagine why it work any differently for me regardless of Jailbreaking. Please double check, it should bring up the most very recent contact with just one letter in Messages when forwarding a message.

    Checked multiple times, in addition to using this feature on an almost daily basis. Not sure what might be going on in your case, or that of some others, but we've certainly seen all kinds of weird things that sometimes a few or some experience while most do not, so that aspect of it isn't all that unusual.

    Just tested this myself and about a half second after I type in a letter my recent contacts pop up as expected.

    I need to type 1-3 letters to get to name. Otherwise I use recents or favorites. Never use search and not an issue for me. Am not Jailbroken. If Jailbroken, expect possibility of some issues.

    Just to be clear, we are talking about when you either forward a text message or start a new one right?

    Potential differences with your device and/or data? Jailbreak? Tweaks? Backups that might have something off I them? Etc.?
