Creating a Company Contact on iOS

I’ve long wanted to be able to create new business contacts in the iOS Contacts app. On macOS, there’s a checkbox to control whether the contact displays as a person or as a company. The value syncs to iOS, which respects it, but there’s no switch on iOS to mark contacts created there. However, Manfred Linzner-Scherf has a great tip for how the value can be set implicitly. You create the contact on iOS but fill in only the Company field. Then click Done. This gets iOS to remember that it’s a company contact. You can then go back and add the First name and Last name, and it will remain marked as a company.
