facebook 6

Facebook pushed out an update for its iOS client this afternoon, bringing the app to version 16.0. The social network doesn’t say what changes were made, but it does now say “optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus” in the description.

This is great news for folks with one of Apple’s newer handsets, as their larger displays really highlight non-updated apps with stretched UI and fuzzy graphics. Facebook was one of the few remaining high profile apps without iPhone 6 support.

Today’s update follows Monday’s rollout of a significant new feature for Facebook: stickers in comments. Using the web or various mobile apps, users can now post stickers when leaving comments on timeline posts, status updates and pictures.

It’s unclear what, if any, other changes today’s update brings about aside from iPhone 6 support, as Facebook used a generic “faster and better” statement in its release notes. To check it out for yourself, grab Facebook from the App Store for free.

    About damn time! But why dont they tell us what they’ve changed? The same freaking description everytime gets annoying!

    • James G

      So they can sneak shit in without us knowing.

    and Whatsapp like always the last one…

    • Loay Al-wesi

      Sometimes, I feel that Whatsapp is running by God’s blessing only … no one is following up on it or updating it or adding any significant features … I remember it took them like 4 months to update whatsapp to optimise iOS7

    Just waiting for Instagram now!

    • Lol, 32 updates later “Bug fixes and performance improvements”

    iDB, you should let your readers know about Google’s new Nexus lineup and Lollipop OS. It will give some perspective on why Google is, and always will, trump Apple in software and hardware.

      Umm why are you on this blog if you love google so much?

    • Fevostone

      I love the nexus line and always will I have iPhone 6 and nexus 5 would love the nexus 6

      Calm it down. While your entitled to your own opinion, don’t make it sound like you want to start a flame war between Fanboys.

    • James G

      They have.

  • I really hate that they no longer tell us which feature they’re screwing up for us.

  • Michael

    I can no longer find the “most recent posts” option for the timeline. I guess we are stuck with whatever FB wants to show us now.

    • Michael

      Whoops…it was just moved up in the favorites menu under “nearby places”

  • neoamaru

    great, about time..
    i like how the font is well adjusted, no more fuzziness,
    all that remains now are Instagram, WhatsApp & a bunch from Google & we should be good to go (^^)

  • diggitydang

    Status bar still overlaps the interface though… *SMH*

  • JulianZH

    still no “most recent” 🙁
