The development team of Skype has released a new version of its application for iOS. This slight update brings HD video calling feature to iPhone and iPad.
The VoIP application Skype has been now updated to version 4.10 on the iPad and iPhone. However, this minor release adds support for HD calls for the iPad 4 and iPhone 5. Users will therefore be able to make conversations at 720p.
In August 2011, Skype had previously improved the quality of the video stream on OS X Lion. In February, a subsidiary of Microsoft had released version 5.8 of its application on Windows with the ability to make calls in Full HD (1080p). On Windows Phone, 720p is available since March on the high-end range of Nokia, HTC and Samsung.
The team adds that the quality and stability of calls is improved and simplified dialing to a foreign country with a new country code can be also performed. The team is also working on a new version for iOS to improve the stability and compatibility with iOS 7.
