After taking care of users by updating its flagship iOS application for iOS 7, which Apple officially rolled out Wednesday, Facebook took care of its developers with the release of a new software-development kit for the operating system.
Facebook SDK for iOS 3.8 is now available for download, and it contains samples to fully support iOS 7, Xcode 5, and 64-bit apps. The social network highlighted more of the changes to its SDK in a post on its developer blog:
We’re also making it easier for your app to handle permission changes. People can use your app from more than one device. They can also revoke or grant permissions to your apps from each of those devices. Unless you’re syncing that information through another path, your app would not be aware of any permission changes until an authorization was requested. The result can be permission errors or redundant app switches to request permissions already granted.
Version 3.8 of the iOS SDK will automatically refresh permissions once a day so that your app can more accurately determine if additional authorization is required. This refresh will be batched with outgoing requests to avoid extra network round trips.
Developers: Are you in full iOS 7 mode yet?
