You can now hide your WhatsApp “Last Seen” status from specific contacts, in addition to the existing “Everyone,” “My Contacts” and “Nobody” options from earlier.
In more recent iterations Apple’s mobile operating systems, like iOS 13 and 14, the company attempted to incorporate support for third-party VoIP apps such as WhatsApp in the contact list to make reaching people who use those services even easier.
The concept sounds splendid on paper, but the execution appears to have been anything but. iOS developer 0xkujhappened upon a tweak bounty by Reddit user karm2308 requesting the removal of these botched options from the contact list, and a free jailbreak tweak dubbed Hide VOIP Suggestions was consequently conceived.
It goes without saying that the vast majority of iPhone users resort to using the stock Contacts app that Apple pre-installs from the factory for managing their contact list.

Designating a contact as a ‘favorite’ contact in the Phone app moves that person’s contact information to the dedicated Favorites tab at the bottom of the app, but if you were looking for even more added convenience, then we think you’ll come to appreciate a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called CallFavorites by iOS developer pixelomer.
If you’ve recently updated your Mac to macOS Big Sur, you may have noticed an issue with your contacts. Have all of your Contacts suddenly been duplicated since the upgrade? If so, you’re not alone.
