If you're running iOS 8 on your iPhone or iPad, it's never been easier to access the contacts you call and message the most. From most recent contacts to the people you've got marked as favorites, iOS 8 makes it quicker and easier than ever to get in touch with them.
How to access your favorite and most recent contacts in two taps with iOS 8
- Double tap your Home button in order to launch the app switcher.
- You'll see a list of your recent and favorite contacts along the top. Scroll from side to side in order to siphon through them.
- Once you find the person you'd like to call, message, or FaceTime, tap on their contact bubble to expand your options.
- Tap on the method you'd like to use to contact them.
That's it! Keep in mind that what contacts show in the app switcher can be customizing in Mail, Contacts, Calendars through the Settings app. If you use Favorite contacts frequently it may be more beneficial for you to disable recent contacts from showing so you always see a list of your favorites without having to scroll very far. You can also do the opposite and disable Favorite contacts if you choose.
