Facebook Home could be coming to the iPhone

Facebook Home for iPhone could be coming soon

Facebook Home may not be doing so well on Android, but that isn't stopping the talks of the app arriving on the iPhone. According to Adam Mosseri, director of product at Facebook, talks are happening, but nothing is concrete right now. He says: "We've shown them what we've built and we're just in an ongoing conversation".


During the Q&A session after Facebook Home was unveiled, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg expressed interest in bringing Home to iOS, but said that an iOS version would be harder to create as the social networking site would have to work with Apple. Mosseri said that Facebook Home would be altered in order to suit Apple's preferences:

It may or may not be Home. We could also just bring some of the design values to the iOS app. That might be how it ends up. Or we could build just the lock screen. Maybe then it's not called Home, it's called something else.
