Facebook, Skype and YouTube get Update for iOS 8

By on October 21, 2014

As you already know Apple has released new models of iPhone and iPad few days ago. Now we have a huge iPhone 6 plus with 5.5 inches screen and an iPhone 6 with 4.7 inches screen. Developers have already started work on apps and games that can support these screen sizes and we finally got compatible and latest versions of Facebook, Skype and YouTube. The latest versions of these apps are not only made for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but they also support Retina Display.


The latest version of Skype for iOS devices is 5.6. This version supports large devices as well as HD Retina Display. On the other hand, Skype has taken advantage of new screen sizes and introduced a newer and better user interface with some extra features you might want to see on your screen.


This version shows presence indicators in the list and it also shows number of contacts and their time zones. Like desktop version of Skype, the iOS version now marks message as read and unread. This latest version of Skype has 65MB size and you can download it from Apple App Store aka iTunes.


YouTube also released its latest version for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This model is not only compatible with bigger screen sizes of latest Apple devices but it also fixes some issues and bugs in previous versions. The previous version of YouTube has keyboard and status bar issue but this version has fixed those minor user interface issues.

YouTube has also taken advantage of bigger screen sizes and now users can easily subscribe to channels and videos from the video interface. Users can also see all playlists when adding more videos to those playlists, this feature is useful because it is quite efficient and you can do multiple things from same interface. The latest version of YouTube is available on iTunes and it has 20MB size.


Facebook finally released its version 16.0 and this latest version has so many improvements. First of all, the latest version is compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and the app runs amazingly beautifully on both of devices. Facebook also supports HD Retina Display and you can enjoy sharp colors and beautiful designs of this app on your newly bought iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Facebook has introduced smaller fonts in the latest release and the new interface is feature rich. Facebook latest version is compatible with new screen aspect ratio and this app runs great on portrait and landscape modes. This latest update is available on Apple App Store aka iTunes and it has 70MB size.
