Your iPhone has a screen within the Phone app that displays all of your recent calls. This screen will show calls that you have made, answered, or missed. While this can be helpful when you are just looking for a number that you have contacted recently, you might prefer to only view the calls that you have missed.
Fortunately there is a toggle option at the top of this screen that can filter out just the missed calls, allowing you to view a sorted list of the calls that came through to your iPhone which you did not answer.
How to Go to Missed Calls on iPhone
- Open the Phone app.
- Touch the Recents tab at the bottom of the screen.
