This morning I update my iPad 2 to iOS 7 and when I went to do a call on Skype, they are not hearing me. Is there something wrong with the settings or is it something else?

    Check your settings, you now need to provide permission for an app to use your microphone. Settings > Privacy > Microphone. You may need to reinstall Skype to force it to make the request. Guesswork, btw, hence not an answer.

  • Does your microphone shows up in Skype settings?

If you accidentially disallowed Skype app accessing your microphone on iOS7 you can change the setting via: Settings -> Privacy -> Microphone -> Skype


Ensure Settings > Privacy > Microphone > Skype is turned on.

I have a similar problem. It is not only on Skype, any app requiring microphone access, even if granted, does not work on my iPad 2 after installing iOS 7. Uninstalling Skype did not help either.

You might want to check other apps that use Microphone input to make sure it's not just a Skype issue. It could be hardware failure or an OS issue.
