    I still see it. I start a new conversation and start typing a name. I see that name appear in a list below. I tap the “i” button next to that name. There is Remove From Recents.

    my experience:
    after the list of recents appear
    next to name is an >
    click that
    if one of my contacts shows list of contact means ie phone number, email
    if not one of my contacts shows list – create, add to,ignore contact

    if the name part of group message ie ann and jack
    shows >
    click that shows individuals with and i click the i shows contact card with at bottom
    send message, share contact, add to favorites

    no red remove from recents appears on any of them

    Still looking for correct way. There is no option anywhere to remove a recent group. I just don’t want to choose the right person in the wrong group and send confidential information inadvertently.

    Just checking back if anyone has found a solution or has spoken to apple support to see if there is a way or if it is a known bug

    IOS 13 did they test anything??? Someone should be fired. Remove recents is an important feature for many of us. I have even tried turning off Siri suggestions and that did not work. Now it even suggests all my contact email addresses and landlines for messages. What a cluster.
    Come on Apple – we need remove recents back now!

    I have been trying to remove recent names in messages and group messages ever since IOS 13 update. I have spent hours searching internet for a fix and nothing. Glad I came upon this site. Now i know it’s an Apple update screw up. Apple could fix this ith a update. They need to get off their buts and fix this ASAP. I just may get rid of my Apple phone. Apple get this fixed.

    This is HUGE. I cannot believe IOS 13 doesnt have the remove from recents feature. Mind blowing!

    I’m having the same issue and Apple was not much help for this issue so technically this is still an issue for me and seems from reading above many other Apple users as well are continuing to experience the same frustration…so annoying!!
