Report: Facebook talks iPhone Home with Apple


Facebook is talking to Apple about a new version of its mobile Home software for iPhone, according to a new report. Facebook’s Home software debuted for Android this month, and Facebook is now discussing expansion with the likes of Apple and Microsoft. Though the idea of Facebook Home appearing on the iPhone seems highly unlikely on the surface, an iPhone version of Home could be much different than the current Android version, according to Facebook director of product Adam Mosseri. “It may or may not be Home,” he said. “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.” Apple has declined comment. [via Bloomberg]
