When Apple released its iOS 10 update, one key feature was to enable third-party developers to take advantage of Siri and Microsoft has done just that.

Microsoft has unveiled a new version of Skype for iPhone and iPad users that allows users to call their contacts without the need of opening the Skype app.

The update means incoming Skype calls will now automatically appear on the device screen and will look similar to regular phone calls.  

At present, this is only available for consumers, however Microsoft unveiled Skype for Business iOS apps later this month.
