Skype keeps crashing on Apple's new iPhone 8/8 Plus, a fix is in the works14
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.
