A common question that is asked by those that own an iPhone or iPad is how to view the FaceTime call history on iOS for calls that you have missed. Using the FaceTime call history will allow you to look up a phone number or email that has called you using FaceTime in the past.

For those iPhone and iPad owners that use FaceTime audio and video often, you may already know that people can use both emails and phone numbers when making a FaceTime call. This is why it’s important to know how to access FaceTime call history that will only show FaceTime activity, instead of it being combined with your regular call history.

  • Calls that are highlighted in red are the FaceTime calls that you missed, while those that are grey are ones that you either answered or made.
  • To read the contact details for each FaceTime call, click the blue “i” in a circle.
