    I know Skype and Whatsapp and other VOIP services have gained access to the native phone capabilities of iOS. Is Skype for Business included? Has anyone successfully used it from the dialer in iOS 10?

    Applications will need to be updated for this. I wouldn't expect to see it until or near the public release, or at least into the public beta.

    Apps aren't allowed to use iOS 10 API's until iOS 10 is publicly released in the Fall so won't know until then.

    Apple hasn't handpicked a list of apps which are integrated, it's a kit that VoIP apps are free to implement in order to integrate. Of course, there's an element of curation on Apple's end around which apps it lets on the store but mostly the question is with Microsoft - will they take advantage of this integration or not!Don't see why they wouldn't? And as others have mentioned, the soonest date they can implement this is 10.0 GM/final release date.

    What got me thinking about this is that I believe Skype was mentioned during the keynote in connection with the phone subsystem. Skype and Skype for Business are obviously different products, but they do share the VoIP functionality. My company uses S4B, so it would be nice to have that available.
