    I used to be able to get to my favorite contacts and most recently used contacts by pushing the home button once or twice (it became so second nature, I actually forgot which it was). Now, with iOS 9, I have no idea how to do this. Has the feature been removed?

    It's not truly the separate Favorites and Recents as it was in iOS 8... there's a combined algorithmic list in the new search screen, that, as Keith said, is accessible by swiping left from your home screen. The contacts listed there are not truly Recents, nor are they Favorites... and there are only 8 of them.

    The "Show in the App Switcher" option has been removed in IOS 9, however, you can view your favorites/most recent contacts via the Spotlight/Proactive Search Feature (Swiping to the right on your home screen).

    You can always use a widget app that puts favorites in the Notification Center. There's several that do that.

    You may need to go to Settings / General / Spotlight Search and turn on Siri Suggestions. Also scroll down and make sure Contacts is turned on. It will only show the eight most called contacts when you click the "Show more" button above the contacts.

    Exactly. They've been there all along. *mind blown*

    In addition to the Favorites tab, there's also a "Recents".

    I'm very disappointed with the lack of this feature. Launcher just solves part of the problem, since the recent calls do not appear over there. Siri isn't smart enough, she decides by herself and take very bad decisions. I hope it will be restored in the first update.

    Be sure and let the folks at Apple know how you feel:
