    I do not want my recent contacts to show in the banner that appears when I double click on the button to remove my open apps. Is there anyway that I can remove this?

    This doesn't work with iOS 9 update - any other tricks? I don't want it either.... At all!

    This feature is no longer available in iOS 9. What are you seeing that you do not want?

    It's still there? I must be mistaken about the subject.

    It was in the App Switcher under iOS 8, but was moved to the Search screen in iOS 9.

    I just discovered that you can go to Settings > General > Spotlight Search and turn [OFF] Contacts and the "recents" floating heads are not shown on the Search page... but you also lose the ability to search your contacts.

    OK. Yeah. I thought they wanted it removed from the App Switcher. LOL
