How to remove suggested contacts from share sheet in iPhone

Apple makes it easier to share your files with those whom you are frequently in contact with, thanks to the suggested contacts feature in the Share Sheet. Apart from sharing files with others, the share sheet also holds a lot of other features, including duplicating files, saving PDF to Files app, hiding photos, etc.

But it’s also easy to accidentally share things with someone else. With the iOS 14 and later versions, the company has now added support for the users to disable the suggested contacts feature in the Share sheet.


Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can remove the suggested contacts list from the Share sheet on your iPhone.
