Microsoft updates Skype for iOS with faster startup time and redesigned sign-in screen

Microsoft today updated its Skype app for iOS, reducing startup time and redesigning the sign-in screen to make it easier to sign in with a Skype ID or a Microsoft account. You can download the new version now directly from Apple’s App Store (iPhone and iPad).

Here’s the full Skype for iOS version 4.15 changelog:

  • A redesigned sign-in screen that makes it easier to sign in with a Skype ID or a Microsoft account.
  • A new permissions pop-up for iOS 7 to use the microphone for calls and audio or video messages.
  • A App Store link to download Skype WiFi, which lets you get online at over 2 million WiFi hotspots worldwide and only pay for the minutes you use with Skype Credit.
  • Additional fixes and performance improvements.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

As you can see, this is a maintenance release. Looks like the company is still cleaning up after its Skype for iOS 7 release.
