Apart from the Control Center, one part of iOS that Apple keeps on changing and improving (arguably) is the Share Sheet. The Share Sheet is what you see when you hit the Share button on your iPhone or iPad. One of the new features that Apple introduced with iOS 13 was the ability to show contacts in the Share Sheet. Depending on who you are conversing with, Siri uses AI to show you those contacts in the Share Sheet. However, not many people like this feature as it takes a lot of space on the Share Sheet and is not customizable. Well, in iOS 14, you can finally remove contact suggestions from the Share Sheet. In this article, we are going to show how you can remove specific contact suggestions from the Share Sheet.

  1. Where are the “suggest less” contacts (info) stored? If you accidentally choose suggest less, can you undo by going to a setting somewhere and removing that contact from the “suggest less” block list?
