Skype for iOS has received an update that allows the app to support two-way HD video calling. That feature is available only on the Apple iPhone 5s
, the Apple iPad Air
and the Apple iPad mini with Retina display
. The trio all have a 64-bit A7 processor under the hood, which should be able to easily handle the demands of a high-definition video chat.
The update leads to quicker syncing of messages between devices, and messages can now be received even while the app is closed. Over 250 million users are on Skype each month, so you're bound to find some of your friends using the app. The new version of Skype for iOS is 4.1.7 and is waiting for you in the App Store.
