Today we have released a hotfix for Skype 4.1 for iPhone and iPad. In this release, we have fixed audio and video calling issues which have been reported by some of our users. These issues have occurred on iPhone 5 devices and iOS6. Thank you for all your valuable feedback which has enabled us to address the issues quickly.


  • Fix for UI freezing issue when placing audio and video call in iPhone 5
  • Fix for intermittent audio and video calling issue on iOS6

We recommend that everyone upgrade to the newly released Skype for iPhone and Skype for iPad applications from the Apple App Store. We are always interested in hearing your feedback, so please report any issues to our Skype Support Network.

UPDATE (10/17/2012, 10:31 AM):

Thanks for all your feedback on Skype for iPhone and iPad 4.1.1 – we’re glad our efforts to improve audio and video call quality have improved your use of Skype every day.

However, we’re aware from your feedback that many of you want to use the full screen size on iPhone 5 for your Skype video calls. We wanted to let you know that full iPhone 5 support is coming soon, so please bear with us while we continue to tweak the app to offer full support of the new device.

You’ll also see some other enhancements we’ll be adding in our next release which we think you’ll enjoy and have fun with. So stay tuned, and thank you again for your feedback.  We appreciate your patience as we prepare to support the iPhone 5.
