Have you not only been missing calls on your iPhone but also not seeing missed call notifications? If you’re unable to answer a call, you still want to know that you received it, especially if the person doesn’t leave you a voicemail.
The fix to the missed call notifications not showing on your iPhone could be as simple as a toggle.
Make sure Phone notifications are enabled
This may seem too easy to be the answer, but often times it’s just a small thing that’s disrupting your flow.
1) Open the Settings on your iPhone.
2) Select Notifications.
3) Scroll to and tap the Phone app.
4) Turn on the toggle for Allow Notifications.
Now while you’re on this screen, you can make some adjustments that might also help.
Alerts: You can choose one or all three areas of your screen to see your alerts. And for missed calls, seeing the alert on the Lock Screen is as useful as the others.
Banner Style: If you select Banners for Alerts (above) and your Banner Style is set to Temporary, you can easily miss that missed call alert. Set this to Persistent so that the banner remains on your screen until you acknowledge it.
You can also adjust the other settings on the Phone notification screen if you like. But the above two will help display your missed calls where you need them and keep them there for you to see.
