Facebook Releases App Update In Conjunction With Apple’s IOS 7 Rollout

Facebook marked Apple’s official rollout Wednesday of its iOS 7 operating system for its iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices with the release of a new application, version 6.5, with design changes to conform with the new elements of iOS 7.

The major addition to the Facebook app is the ability for users to navigate between News Feed, friend requests, messages, and notifications, simply by tapping along the bottom of the screen.

In addition, users can access their Timelines, groups, events, and other areas of the social network via the bottom-right-hand part of the screen.

Users accessing the app via iOS 7 will also see a translucent bar at the top of the screen, which will change dynamically as they move between photos and posts, and they can swipe from left to right to return to their News Feeds.

iOS users: Have you upgraded to iOS 7 yet?
