Facebook Urges IOS Developers To Update SDKs Prior To Rollout Of IOS 7

With Apple set to roll out iOS 7, and many reports pegging Sept. 10 as its debut date, Facebook urged iOS developers to update their software-development kits.

The social network said in a post on its developer blog:

As the Gold Master release of iOS 7 approaches, we’ve been focused on fixing bugs as we find them, rather than waiting for the release. While iOS 7 still remains a moving target, our goal is to give you the best bits as early as possible.

If you are updating your application for iOS 7, we recommend that you also upgrade to our Facebook SDK 3.7.1 or newer. As of 3.7.1, we’ve fixed our last known iOS 7 bug in the library portion of the SDK. While we still have a few bugs in the samples, these should not impact your apps. You can download our latest Facebook iOS SDK here.

iOS developers: Are you ready for the release of iOS 7?
