    I can't imagine why Apple doesn't implement contact pics for every contract in the phone app.

    They let us have in favorites and it showed that everything works very well. Why not for all contacts.

    And by the way: the jailbreak shows that contact pics in messages also works very well on other devices than the 6+.

    It is not understandable at all

    Beats me. Probably a "feature" saved for the next iOS.

    I don't have a problem. Every Contact that I've added a photo to shows up when I get a call. This includes my pharmacy, the pest control company and other commercial numbers, not just family & friends. They're also full screen.

    I think OP means when you are browsing the list of contact

    I think it's unnecessary to use them in the contacts app and messages. I know what my contacts look like, I don't need to be reminded with useless clutter every time I see their contact.

    Okay, I understand. I thought it was another one of those other contacts posts.

    I don't need to see pix in the list; they'd be too tiny anyway.

    Why? Apple's answer: "Because we can. We can take a fat chunk of cash from you, and NOT deliver an awesome experience in return. And we ROTFL because this model... lol... this model... JUST WORKS!!!"

    Don't worry, it'll be a new feature added in iOS 9

    seeing as they added it in favourites in ios 7 it's obviously doable. the weirdest thing is it's on 6+ but not 6... i mean even the 5s has space but really, not the 6??
