Why Does My Iphone Say Maybe a Contact?
If you’ve ever looked at your iPhone’s Contacts list and noticed that some of the names are followed by the word “Maybe,” don’t worry—you’re not going crazy. That’s just iOS 10’s new way of indicating which contacts it thinks you might want to add to your address book.
Here’s how it works: When you upgrade to iOS 10, your iPhone will scan your email accounts and message history for people who aren’t already in your address book.
If it finds any potential matches, it will list those people as “Maybe” contacts. You can view these Maybe contacts by opening the Contacts app and tapping on the Groups button in the top-left corner. Then, scroll down to the “Suggestions” section and tap on “Maybe.”
If you see someone listed as a Maybe contact that you want to add to your address book, just tap on their name and then tap on the Add to Contacts button.iOS 10 is smart enough to know when a Maybe contact should be moved into your main Contacts list. For example, if you exchange a few messages with someone or share their contact information with someone else, they’ll automatically be moved out of the Maybe section. So why does iOS 10 bother creating Maybe contacts in the first place?
The idea is that it can save you time by making it easier to find and add people who aren’t already in your address book. Hopefully, this feature will also reduce the number of duplicate contacts that often show up in people’s lists.
How Do I Get My Iphone to Stop Suggesting Contact Names?
If you find yourself iPhone trying to suggest contact names when you don’t want it to, there are a couple of things you can do to stop it.
First, check your recently contacted list and make sure that the person you’re trying not to have suggested isn’t on there. If they are, simply swipe left on their name and tap “Remove from Recents.”
If that doesn’t work, go into your Settings app and scroll down to “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.” From there, tap on “Contacts” and then “Contact Photos.” Turn off the switch next to “Show Contact Photos in All Contacts.”
This will prevent photos from popping up next to names in the Contacts app, which should also stop them from being suggested.
Iphone Maybe:” in Front of Unknown Contacts
If you are using an iPhone, there is a new feature that allows you to see the name of the person in front of you, even if you do not have their contact information saved in your phone. This can be extremely useful in a number of situations, such as when you meet someone at an event or party and want to remember their name later.
To use this feature, simply open up the Camera app on your iPhone and point it at the person whose name you want to see.
If their contact information is available, their name will appear on screen. If not, their initials will be shown instead. Either way, this can be a helpful way to get acquainted with someone new without having to ask them for their name repeatedly.
If you have a lot of “maybe” contacts in your iPhone, you can get rid of them easily with a few taps. Just go to your Contacts app, tap on the Groups tab, and then uncheck the Maybe group. All of your maybe contacts will be gone!
