I keep getting notifications and see in my recent calls that I've missed FaceTime audio calls from one of my coworkers, but he hasn't contacted me that way in over a month. Better still, one of the calls was logged at the same time he was in the air en route from Orlando to LA, and he wasn't using on-board wifi. What's more, my phone hasn't actually rung once, and there's no evidence in his call log of attempting to call me. Thoughts, anyone? Thanks!

Its the continuity piece at work here. If you get a call on your iPhone, it uses FaceTime to sync up with you iPad and Mac. This is how you are able to answer/make calls on those devices with iOS 8. If it's a big deal to you, turn off cellular calls in FaceTime options and it should stop.

Could it be his account got hacked in some way?

I highly doubt it, but I'll check with him just in case.

Are you sure? Because the last call I see from him that was FaceTime audio is the most recent one that was an actual call I placed to him two full days ago. The notifications are showing up just on my phone. My AppleCare ran out on the phone in September, so I'm wondering how I should pitch this to Apple as a possible bug. Thoughts?

Thanks for weighing in, guys.

I've experienced something similar. I FaceTimed my wife, then for several days after she'd get FT notifications from me when I never FTed her. It stopped on its own after a while. No idea what the cause was.

iPad will always display the "fowarded from iPhone" calls as "facetime audio".
So no, what you see on iPad is correct. It just doesnt have an "Phone" app so this is the way call handoff works. Via facetime audio.

I have gotten two or three of these recently but I haven't used Facetime in a year. Neither has the other party.

This is the call handoff/continuity feature. Two devices on the same icloud account... You can answer calls from one device on the other -- it handles the data via FaceTime.

I've been having the same issue for a couple of days now as well. Strangely enough my iPhone 6's call log shows missed FaceTime Audio calls to a friend whenever I open it with a time stamp on exactly the time I've opened it. And it's not just one call but two at the same time.
This is surely a bug and a nasty one, I must say. Anyone heard of a fix yet?

It's happening to me too.

Every day I see a missed facetime call from my mother, I call her back and she says she didn't do it.

Not the handoff feature

Some similar symptoms may be just the Handoff feature doing its thing, but mine and some others mentioned here are not: this is a bug in iOS 8. It's definitely not Handoff because the person calling did not call at that time (often not recently at all. And they always come in pairs. Hopefully Apple will address this bug in iOS 8.2.
