Tech Crunch reports suggest that iOS6 will be soon implemented in the system-level integration of Facebook, in the same lines of iOS5 integration with Twitter. The speculation of iOS6 – Facebook integration gathered much realism after Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke at the D10 conference, about his thoughts on the relationship between Apple and Facebook being very positive.
iOS will certainly be advantaged from the Facebook integration, especially where tons of apps use Facebook for authentication and signups. Not to exclude Twitter from being very much a part of the new iOS 6, to be codenamed as ‘Sundance’, this continued partnership between Apple and Twitter will be authenticated in several sessions to be held at the Worldwide Developers Conference. As regards Facebook, since most of the apps veto the requirement of Facebook authentication, it is certainly the right time for Apple to have brought Facebook on the board.
With the different levels of permissions on Facebook posts, the manner as to how the integration has to be carried out for sharing items between Apple and Facebook, is still being worked out. Tech Crunch also reports that although Apple has been known to change its mind in the past as regards the topic pertaining to Facebook integration, this caveat might not hold true this time. Especially after seeing the latest developments that have unfolded between Apple and Facebook, the Facebook integration story with iOS6 seems to very much realistic in effect.
Moreover, at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference later this month, Facebook integration with iOS6 is all set to be unveiled. Hopefully, all the rumors and speculation over Facebook integration which have been lingering for quite some time now, would all end on a positive note. As Apple CEO Tim Cook suggests ‘Stay Tuned.’ Certainly, let’s do so.
