The reintroduction of Universal Resource Identifier (URI) support will allows users to launch Skype from anywhere within iOS, when tapping a relevant Skype name or number. This feature will also enable developers to easily use Skype’s messaging and calling infrastructure to start calls and chats straight from their mobile app or mobile website, rather than building their own.
The update also brings improvements to the dialer, allowing users to save phone numbers entered into the dial pad and also phone numbers in your recent calls list. When you save the phone numbers, you can easily create new contacts so you don't have to search for the number next time you call. Skype team has also made improvements in chat notification reliability.
You can download the update directly on your iOS device through the Apple App Store or by using the following link:
