With iOS 10, Apple introduced CallKit that lets your VoIP app integrate tightly with the native phone app on your device. This means that your Skype calls will act as your normal incoming calls showing up on the native Phone user interface with the accept and decline buttons. This may come in handy, as it eliminates the need to launch the app and answer the calls. However, let’s imagine if you’ve got tons of Skype calls that take over your Phone app.


Fortunately, there is a simple way you can use to stop Skype calls from ending up in the Phone app in the Recents tab. In this guide, we will show you how to do this.

Before we begin, note that once you disable the feature, your incoming Skype calls will show up as notifications on your iPhone.
