    So it looks like Apple added dual SIM functionality on these 2018 iPhones, BUT forgot to update the Contacts app. to work with a dual SIM setup.



    Anyone know of a way to "separate" contacts one would use with each line other than having them all in contacts and assigned either the primary line or secondary line for calling?

    Why would you need two separate contacts apps?

    Given that you still can’t change which group a contact is in without using a Mac or icloud.com, I’d expect Apple to provide a solution to this in iOS 14.

    It seems that you are quite optimistic.

    You can set contacts to "always use" one phone number or the other in the dual sim setup.

    I don't know of a way to completely separate the contacts list, but then again, I really don't see where it is necessary. Just search your contacts for the name of the individual or company.
