FURTHER EXPLANATIONS OF WHAT YOU’LL FIND IN THE EMAIL YOU RECEIVE FROM SKYPEYour Skype Inbox will be emptied and your last login token will be removed. All status messages, contacts, and friends on your Skype account will be deleted as well. All files stored in the /Documents folder of your iPhone (or another device) that are related to Skype and are not native application files (such as call history or SMS databases for example) will also be deleted. A clean installation of the latest version of Skype for iOS can then be done via iTunes or the App Store/iTunes store however it is not required since there is no such thing as “tokens” for Skype on iOS.

Your contacts in the People app (Contacts) of your device will not be removed or deleted as long as you don’t remove them from it manually. It is recommended to use a contact management application such as Outlook, Android Contacts Sync, or an iCloud plugin for your preferred mail client if you are going to synchronize your contacts with these services instead since they could do much more than what’s available to do in the iOS Contacts App.

Call log history will be cleared but texts messages will be retained and can still be accessed by calling someone due to a feature that is provided by Apple itself since iMessage also works between iPhone and other devices. The call logs can be restored by re-entering your Skype username and password on the sign-in prompt. Make sure to do this in a place where you have good Internet connectivity as Skype for iOS will download all call history since you’ve entered your credentials, so make sure that you have enough data quota left or are connected to WiFi.

Accounts in Settings (as shown below) such as Color or MixRadio may not work properly after uninstalling Skype along with its profile(s). This is because these settings are installed inside separate apps files rather than being integrated into the OS like most built-in features. Removing these profiles manually from /var/mobile/Applications is recommended but if one wants them back they can be reinstalled via AppSync or iTunes. Account settings for services such as WhatsApp and WeChat may also be removed when uninstalling Skype since their native iOS counterparts are integrated into the OS itself.

The Favorites Sidebar in the Contacts app will be empty but you can still save and change your profile picture from within People (Contacts). Also, under “View” > “Favorites”, your favorite contacts will still appear even if they are not Skype users. Deleting the Contacts app data won’t recover this information however it is worth doing so in order to remove possible duplicate contact entries that could occur after removing the entire address book via iTunes or iCloud backups etc..

Your messages on Facebook will not be deleted since messages between Skype and Facebook are separate from each other. You can reinstall these messages by opening the Options tab and selecting “Sync messages between my devices”. It is recommended to remove your Skype account first if you wish to delete this information since the Facebook Messenger app has a better experience with connecting users in channels (groups) than the one that is available on Skype for iOS.

All files stored in /tmp/app-related or its subfolders will be removed as well as all entries within ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/. No items here are required by Apple so it’s safe to clear these folders out however some crash logs could still be retrieved from iTunes backups, 3rd party applications data synced via iCloud, etc.

Videos and voice notes which are stored by Skype within the Documents folder will not be deleted. If these items were synced with iCloud, they can still be accessed after uninstalling via iTunes or iCloud backups for example.

Logs (history) of chats between you and other Skype users on other platforms such as Windows/Mac OS etc.. along with your old chat logs in general will also be cleared. It is recommended to use a dedicated chat client such as Adium, Pidgin, or Trillian if one wishes to keep using Skype in this manner since it’s possible that the same information could occur twice if left unchecked however this behavior is very unusual. That being said, all of these things could also be removed by installing the “Skype Chat History Cleaner” app which is provided by Skype themselves.

Your contacts list will remain the same and you can log back into other devices that are connected to your account without any problems however if one wishes to delete all of their histories, they must do so from each individual device that is using it via Skype for Business. Accounts in Settings (as shown below) such as Color or MixRadio may not work properly after uninstalling Skype along with its profile(s). This is because these settings are installed inside separate apps files rather than being integrated into the OS like most built-in features. Removing these profiles manually from /var/mobile/Applications is recommended but if one wants them back they can be reinstalled via AppSync or iTunes. Account settings for services such as WhatsApp and WeChat may also be removed when uninstalling Skype since their native iOS counterparts are integrated into the OS itself.
