A source inside Facebook told The Next Web that the social network is not in talks with Apple or Microsoft about bringing Home to the iPhone and Windows Phone, respectively.
We’ve shown them what we’ve built, and we’re just in an ongoing conversation.
Speaking about the iPhone specifically, Mosseri told Bloomberg:
It may or may not be Home. We could also just bring some of the design values to the iOS app. That might be how it ends up. Or we could build just the lock screen. Maybe then it’s not called Home, it’s called something else.
Anything that happens with Apple is going to happen with partnership. Google’s Android is open, so we don’t have to work with them.
While Facebook does have a strong relationship with Apple, the latter is notoriously protective of its platform.
