Updated my XR and so far I'm enjoying the new update. Its taking some getting used to figure out how much id like to utilize dark mode, and getting used to some of the larger tiles and favorites in safari. but that's fine. The only thing that I'm not a big fan of that I've already accedtly used a few times, is when i go to share a webpage or photo to either use airplay, email it, or whatnot. Theres a row on the top that shows most recent contacts texted. its kinda distracting and ive accidentally sent a webpage already. i know there's new siri and search options. But do we know how to remove this from the share option.

I’ve looked around and I can’t find any way to hide it or turn it off. I find it annoying in the extreme. My “row” consists of my wife + others, such as Jane, Jane and Cathy, Cathy and Joan, Jane and Joan, etc. What an idiotic “feature”.

I'm getting the following message when trying to setup my iMessage Name and Photo: "Sharing Name and Photo is not available because iCloud and iMessage accounts are different or are not signed in"

Any ideas what's going on?
