iphone 6 with skype

Microsoft has just posted a new update for its Skype app for the iPhone that offers an optimized user interface made for the larger displays on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus models.

Here's what Microsoft has to say on the new 5.6 Skype update:

On an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+, Skype 5.6 displays more of your recent chats and shows more messages in conversation view, helping you to communicate with your friends and family quickly and simply. Skype 5.6 for iPhone is our second release that continues to build on the new iOS 8 extensions. Now whether you're using an iPhone 4 or an iPhone 6+ you'll get the best Skype experience for your screen size.

The full change log includes:

  • Native resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+
  • Presence indicators are now displayed in the "recent" list
  • Number of contacts and time zones are now shown on contact profiles
  • Individual conversations can be marked as read/unread
  • Notification sounds are disabled in "Do not disturb" mode
  • General Improvements
