Apple’s iOS 6 Will Have Built-in Connections To Facebook

Apple’s iOS 6 Will Have Built-in Connections To Facebook

According to a report by Techcrunch, Apple will enable deep integration of Facebook in their next iOS version. That means the next iOS or iOS 6 will have built-in connections to Facebook. There has been a lot of meshing going on in recent months between Apple and Facebook. In February, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that “the one company that is closest to being like Apple” is Facebook. Earlier this week, Cook emphasized Apple’s relationship with Facebook at the D10 conference. He said, “Facebook is a great company, and the relationship is solid”. This seems to give indications of the social networking site’s deep integration with Apple’s different platforms. Apple’s iOS 6 is hoped to be revealed at the company’s annual developers conference, to be held on June 11.

Google and Facebook haven’t been enjoying a particularly good relationship. The two have been criticising each other for a long time. For Google, the problem lies in the fact that Facebook wouldn’t share its user data with Google, although the social network chooses to do so with other websites. Facebook, on the other hand, doesn’t have any love lost for Google either.
