Skip nav links on mobile

Something that has recently occurred to me and I'm interested in hearing

Situation: The desktop version of a site has top navigation, but the
mobile version of the site collapses the top nav into a hamburger menu.

Question: The desktop version should have a skip nav, but should the
skip nav be removed (hidden) from mobile versions of the site since the
top nav of the mobile version is collapsed and thus requires only one
swipe to bypass? Furthermore I find skip links problematic on mobile,
particularly iOS/VO.
