    You’re welcome. I thought that the information about changing your search settings might help. Since it didn’t, you might want to contact Apple Support for further guidance.

    what “top search engines” are you referring to? Can you not just swipe down on your home screen to initiate the Spotlight search?
    In settings there is no spotlight search for me to enable contacts to show. Please help. Mine is iphone 11 dual sim
    Go to Settings → Siri & Search → Contacts
    Make sure everything is enabled therein. Reboot the iPhone and try to search for one of your contacts via Spotlight search.

    I have done that in Siri&Search. I have already enable SHOW IN SEARCH and Suggest Shotcuts but still that didn't help

    Since none of the basic troubleshooting is working for you, I would suggest contacting Apple Support.

    Settings → Siri & Search → Contact. Enable the toggle next to “Show Sir Suggestions For Contacts”. In fact, enable the toggle next to EVERYTHING in that section.
