A potential bug in early versions of iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 causes the appearance of fake missed FaceTime call notifications. I noticed that first when missed call notifications from my colleague Anne Marie appeared on my iPhone. Upon returning the call, she told me that she never called. I was puzzled but didn’t think much of it. Then I noticed a pattern. Every time I missed a FaceTime call, iOS logged an additional missed call from Anne Marie. Both missed calls had the same timestamp. The screenshots below show the fake missed FaceTime call notifications.
