After all above you have two apps opened: Skype and web browser. But you need to see them on the same screen simultaneously. So, robot control is possible only on those iOS-devices that allow opening and seeing two applications simultaneously. This mode is named "Split View" and available on iPAD only starting from iOS9 version, in model iPad Pro, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2 and on iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s with iOS11.
