    I've used Groups app to multiple delete contacts on my iPhone but the contacts have not been deleted from my contacts on the phone. I thought that Groups app was meant to do this?

    Did this feature ever work for you, removing iPhone contacts?

    I looked up iMore to specifically find out how best to do this and followed instructions to download the free Groups app - and it said in the article that it should also delete the contacts held in the iPhone - but it hasn't done this.

    I assume the article via the following link is the one you're referring to?

    I don't use that particular app, but did you follow the instructions to the letter?

    I just followed these steps myself and deleted 5 contacts. It worked fine. Not sure what the issue is?
