    Did Apple nix the round recent contact circles at the top of the app switcher completely in iOS 9?

    Didn't they just introduce this feature like last year?! Am I really the only one who used those? Or did a setting I'm not finding get turned off somewhere along the update process?

    They removed the feature. You can swipe to the left on the homescreen to see "suggested" contacts.

    The whole favourites section is nearly gone for non brand new 6s and 6s+ iPhones. You can access contacts from moving over to the left of page 1 in your home screen, but it's not really a true favourites. It's more a recent and suggested contacts based on time and day when you normally communicate with someone.

    True favourites is now used only on 6s and 6s+ via 3D Touch on the phone icon from the home screen.

    That's what I was afraid of. Was just hoping I was missing something. Lame.

    Thanks for that info - that's good to know that they'll be back when I eventually upgrade but still stinks for now. I really liked the contacts in the app switcher.
