    I recently updated my iphone 6s to IOS 10, now when i charge my phone to 100%, and then go to contacts (I'll see all my contacts) but when I go and search(in contacts app) any name (which is there in my contact list), the answer I get is "No result found".
    What to do?

    Help will be appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to iMore!

    My suggestion would be to do a hard reset. Hold the power & home button at the same time until you see the  logo. Then release the buttons and wait for it to finish. Hopefully this will solve the problem for you. Thanks!

    If you the new iPhone 7 or 7 plus you have to hold the Dow. Volume button and the power button until you see the Apple logo and then let go.

    That is down volume button and the power button. Sorry about that.

    When I type people's name in my message they can't be found and when I have siri call people she cannot find them in my contacts, 10.2 b7, I think it's just a glitch in iOS 10

    Not on my iOS 10. Mine works fine. Works on my Wife's 5c as well. Maybe it's the iPhone 7.

    I had this problem for some time until I read threads on this post. First I did a hard reset and it worked to some extent. Still some of the contacts could not be searched even though I had them in front of my eyes Then I installed an awaiting upgrade and the problem was fully resolved. Maybe waiting upgrades result in such problem as I almost had the issue from the same time I had an awaiting upgrade.

    I too suffered an issue but slightly different, when I created a new text message the screen would freeze for 5 or so seconds when I attempted to type a contacts name, then the name(s) would appear after the freeze. This is the first time I've ever had issues with iOS 10, happened only after latest update. Force resetting by holding down volume and power simultaneously (iPhone 7) has seemed to fix the problem. A general restart will not work. Force resetting doesn't reset your iPhone to factory settings it's simply like holding down the power button on a pc.
