For the best performance and most up to date features, we recommend that you use the latest version of Skype. The latest version of Skype works on all iOS devices running iOS 8 or higher. If you're running an older version of iOS, you won't have access to Skype's latest features but will still be able to use the basics to keep you connected to your friends and family on Skype.
