Apple Hints At Facebook Tie-Up


For years, people have wondered if and when Apple and Facebook would join forces. Now, Apple CEO Tim Cook is hinting that the company’s iOS mobile operating system could get Facebook integration in the not-too-distant future. Asked about a potential tie-up at AllThingsD’s D10 Conference, this week, Cook said that he thought the relationship between Facebook and Apple was “very solid,” adding that iOS users should “stay tuned on this one.”

Asked about deal-breakers for each company, Cook said that Apple’s goal is to “provide customers simple and elegant ways to do the things they want to do,” and that, as such, he wanted customers to have the best possible experience when using Facebook on their iPhones or iPads.

As WebProNews recalls: “When Apple unveiled iOS 5 last fall with Twitter integration, the big question on everyone’s mind was ‘Where’s Facebook?’ … Apple had reportedly been in talks to bring Facebook integration to iOS since before iOS 4, but nothing had ever come of it.”
