The new features Facebook implemented in their latest iPhone release don’t constitute the only changes occurring with the app according to pocket-lint.
Apparently the hidden code that previously unlocked the iPad version of the app has now been removed.
The code was unearthed by a Canadian engineering student back in July. At the time TechCrunch described the software as being the perfect complement to the iPad’s 9.7-inch display.
This can mean two things: either that Facebook has gone back to the drawing board or that the company is simply attempting to thwart users installing the unapproved code on jailbroken tablets.
One way or the other the iPad-native version of Facebook for iOS platforms has already been confirmed as scheduled for release sometime this year. The only question is when exactly?
There is also a chance Facebook has already submitted a new binary for review to Apple.
The new additions in version 3.5 of the Facebook app are:
Made it easier to share with who you want:
