Is there a way to set who comes up when using 3D touch on messages application? People who I hardly even text show up

Re: 3D Touch messages..

I had the same thought and looked all over the settings but couldn't find anything. I feel strongly that Apple will implement something like that, though.

Re: 3D Touch messages..

I think it all depends on the last 3 people you messaged. It goes in that order.

It doesn't appear to have any rhyme or reason. Of the 3 people in my list, only 1 is a person that I've texted with in the last 4 days. I've texted with about 10 people more recently than the other two.

3D Touch messages..

Just checked mine and they seem to be the last 3 contacts I received texts from, rather than those I actually texted.

Edit: just noticed that all 3 of them are also non-iPhone users.

Re: 3D Touch messages..

First 3 contacts on favorites?

Nope... 2 of the 3 are in my Phone app Favorites, but both near the bottom of the list.

And 2 of the 3 (not the same 2 as above) are in a recent group chat, but neither have texted to that group chat in over a week...

Very, very odd algorithm that they're using.

I just heard Rene talk about how Apple populates the "who" on the Messages peek. He said that Apple uses an algorithm to determine things like your most recent text participants, your location and even time of day. The example that he used was that you always text your spouse at a specific time, Apple tries to make sure that if you peek on the Messages app at that time, that you spouse is in the list. Similarly, if you tend to text a friend from the local coffee shop in the afternoon, that it tries to make that person available when those factors are back in play.

Sounds like pretty advanced stuff, and brings Arthur C Clark's 3rd law to mind: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic".

Re: 3D Touch messages..

Bet Apple adds a setting , giving users the power to choose what they want to see via 3D Touch on all applicable apps! Just wonder when 3rd party apps is going to join the 3D party??
