The company’s latest iPhones didn’t manage yet to attract the traditional tons of buyers outside of its Apple Stores all over the world like it used to. Still, there were enough Apple fans who decided to but the new devices.

More and more users who’ve bought the latest iPhones are complaining about a bug on Skype’s iOS app that causes a crash on the brand new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The first complaints originated on Twitter and Microsoft has already acknowledged the issue.
