    Since updating to iOS 9.1 I have noticed a very annoying problem that was not present before.

    If the contacts app is closed (like when you restart the phone or just manually close it from the springboard and open it again) and you open it to search for a contact using the search field on the upper part of the contacts app, the results you get are not what you expect. It just shows you results from emails and other areas but nothing from the contact list. If you immediately tap on “groups” and tap “done” to come back to the list, the search function works again as expected.

    I have contacts from iCloud, Exchange and Facebook in my list and this happens with any of the groups selected. It doesn't matter if it I have just one group of contacts active or all of them.

    If you have done the trick of going into groups and coming back again once and don’t close the app (let it be opened in the background) you will not see this problem again until you restart or close and reopen the app.

    Have anyone noticed this?

    Thanks. I have reported this to Apple. I hope they can come with a fix because now I have to leave the contacts app opened all the time so the problem does not come back.
    The mote people that reports it via feedback and bug reporter the biggest the chance to get a fix

    This has been fixed in 9.2. I reported it via feedback. I received a response that it was addressed, and I could verify that the problem has been corrected.
