Missed Calls iOS 16 bug

Missed calls showing up in Recents without ringing first on the iPhone? Calls not coming trough iPhone after iOS 16 update? Even worse, missed calls don’t even show in the call log and are only visible in Voicemail? Missed calls bug persists in iOS 16.1?

iOS 16 Missed Calls Bug?

This issue has been reported by Marisa, in the comments section of our iOS 16.1 review page:

“I just got an iPhone 13 with iOS 16.1, and the call history is doing something strange. It’s registering missed calls that never happened.”

It’s been confirmed by Pe3k:

“Delayed calls and app notifications are not been fixed after installing iOS 16.0.3 on my iPhone 14 Pro Max. The same issues still persist.”

We’ve found a similar complaint on Reddit:

“When I’m at work on the Wi-Fi I have been missing calls. Like they don’t even show up in the phone call log. Only reason I know I’m getting them is due to Google Voice app which handles my voicemails.”

Missed Calls Not Showing Up In Recents?

Other users complain that missed calls are not displayed in Recent or display twice (doubled) when iPhone is in Do Not Disturb mode.

Are you experiencing anything similar? The only workaround available at the moment is to disable DND or any other Focus mode and enable Silent mode to compensate.
