Skype keeps crashing on Apple's new iPhone 8/8 Plus, a fix is in the works

Apple has just started shipping its new iPhone 8/8 Plus smartphones and it looks like early adopters have issues with some of the apps that usually work smoothly on iOS devices.
It appears that the latest version of Skype does not function well on the new iPhones. Many customers who purchased the Apple's handsets complain that Microsoft's app crashes due to a mysterious bug.
That's the bad news. The good news is Microsoft is already aware of the issue and is working on a fix, which will be delivered in the form of maintenance update sooner rather than later.
If you're a happy iPhone 8/8 Plus owner, and a Skype user at the same time, then you should wait for an update if the app is affected by the same bug that makes it crash all the time.

Microsoft really messed up skype. It looks like a kid's chat and social app now. It is easier to take a selfie than it is to find the place to actually make a call.

' Microsoft's app crashes due to a mysterious bug.' Now try to use your brain. If works good on other iPhones , or iPads, but not on iPhone 8 , where is the bug???? Kiss the hands of the Microsoft team, who will work around the iPhone 8's bug, because Apple will never move their a$$es to find out what wrong they did.

I have a weird bug on my iPad Pro 10.5 since updating to iOS 11, whenever I unlock my iPad using touch id, if I try pulling the notifications bar, the iPad would go back to the lock screen and show the notifications there. I'm not sure I made a lot of sense, I couldn't find the right words to describe this bug, so pardon my English.

Skype is old fashion. Google duo, Facebook messenger and Whatsapp video call are the right choices

I don't know about Google duo as no one around me uses it so I don't have a use for it.. Whatsapp and messenger are great tools especially Whatsapp. Skype was good for work, don't know now.. Don't remember when was the last time I used it.
