Facebook for iPhone gets 3D Touch support and other updates


Facebook app for iPhone finally gets 3D Touch support on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The new 3D Touch action works on the home screen icon and provides quick shortcuts to update status, upload video or photo.

Apple had demoed 3D Touch for Facebook app during the iPhone 6s announcement however it took a while for Facebook to release it in the App Store. The release notes for the app update say nothing except that it includes improvements for speed and reliability. While all that is nice, I’m sure Facebook can highlight new features like 3D Touch, as they say in the same release notes in the App Store.

Apart from the home screen icon, 3D Touch does not work anywhere inside the app. Upon some looking, it seems like there is also a new hover button in the Requests tab for searching and viewing friend suggestions. Facebook for iPhone gets 3D Touch support and other updates 2
