Here are some screenshots we received about possible Facebook integration into iOS 5.

Such a feature has not been announced, and we were unable to confirm the screens. Apple has provided Twitter integration into iOS 5 and included a framework to allow them to extend it to account integrations. So, Facebook integration as a system level feature would not be a stretch. These screens closely resemble those of Twitter's integration and could easily be mocked up:

Ultimately, Apple's decision to integrate Facebook into iOS seems to rest negotiations between the two companies. Apple had closely integrated (http://www.macrumors.com/2010/09/02/confusion-over-facebooks-brief-appearance-in-ping-for-itunes/) Facebook into their Ping social service, but the feature was pulled at the last second due to "onerous terms" that Apple could not agree to at the time. Since then, Facebook may be feeling more pressure with the early growth of Google's own social network, Google Plus.

Photo sharing and tagging?

Some kind of photo stream like feature but utilizing Facebook instead of iCloud?

Autoface detection in iOS 5 like in Mac OS Lion?

If that screen shot is genuine, then someone at Apple can't spell "addresses" and I find that a little hard to believe!

Fake!

The strange thing is, under the Twitter settings in iOS 5 beta 7 it's says exactly the same thing but "addresses" is spelled correctly so they didn't just take a screenshot of it.

Also, the keyboard is different than the Twitter one.

The buttons don't look misaligned. They just looked centered vertically. They do look odd horizontally though.

I really hope this does not happen. I already uninstalled the Facebook app because it uploaded my Address Book into Facebook's servers without even notifying me.

I don't need spyware to be integrated into the OS.

It's a French fake.

Why?
Because, in French, "addresses" is spelled "adresses". And here, there's a mistake.

I know it would be an "optional" install but you can bet it will nag and nag and nag if you don't install it. Right now, it's on the app level and it's easy to opt out. OS level things are always expected to be installed so if you opt out, some things will not work as well.

Edit: Yay, fake. Sadly not improbable.

It doesn't if you haven't logged into the Twitter one so why would it for Facebook? Apple doesn't operate that way.

Twitter on iOS 5 is opt-in. If and when Facebook is integrated it'll probably be similar to this ... mockup/fake.

Just think. Your friends integrated completely into your phone. So you can, like, tell them what's happening. In real time. Using your phone.

It's like 1876 all over again.

Except... They're not really your friends.

Are they?

I think this is fake, and I really hope it is.

Facebook is disgraceful on the privacy front, and slowly working their way into every aspect of our lives, building their people database to sell to advertisers.

I hope Apple continues their trend of protecting our privacy. Hiding our identity from publishers who re-sell it and blockin UDID in iOS 5, Apple is doing the right thing by its customers.

I hope Apple is playing the smart game most in this industry are missing and building consumer trust and to make money in different, non-ad driven ways.

Now that the egomaniac is gone, I can see a thawing of the Apple/Facebook relationship.

That said, I don't want Facebook integration. Facebook's for girls.

Just want to let you know that if you didn't set up Twitter in settings, you wouldn't have the tweet button all over the place.

It will be the same if they integrate it with facebook. There will be no button to post it in facebook if you didn't set it up. So, you better calm down. :p

Three possibilities:


As others have said, "fake".
R&D picture of an early UI mockup.
Confidential picture used for marketing, promotional, or training purposes. Any typos/image differences are intentional, to see who's leaking info. Every person or group is given a different picture; if a picture is leaked, Apple now knows where it came from.

Twitter is currently optional and does not hassle you if you do not install it so why would this be different?[COLOR="#808080"]

You would just need a coloured pixel somewhere, not even visible to the naked eye. There's already technology there for doing that.

This is all but guaranteed to be fake! I'm running the most up-to-date iOS 5 beta and Facebook integration is nowhere to be found. Unless they added this to iOS5 GM and the Dev's haven't seen it, you're out of your mind to believe this...especially since someone spelled 'addresses' wrong!!

Mad-B-One
Sep 27, 2011, 01:35 PM
In German, "address" is spelled "Adresse" since the word was probably changed by the common use of the verb "to add." That actually originates from adressen, a middle-aged English word with French origin. Same for the German word but they didn't change it, they just conjugated it.

Back to the picture: Probably a mock up. Apple is not going dark ages on us, is it? :D

You would just need a coloured pixel somewhere, not even visible to the naked eye. There's already technology there for doing that.

Only that I would use a cell phone and make a photo of it in JPEG which then will compress out the pixel variance as being too small an information. If that is not good enough because it might tell which phone did it, you can print and re-scan it. There are just sooooo many low-tech conversions to throw off the geek tracing that you can get around it without getting caught. Purposeful misspelling is oldschool but might work better. But I personally agree with the people seeing this as a mock up.

There is so much wrong with these images…

1) The times are significantly different in each
2) The WiFi icon is in a totally different spot in the 2nd picture, suggesting a different carrier
3) First one shows Bluetooth, Location and Orientation Lock on, 2nd one has none of them
4) 2nd picture is fully charged & plugged in, 1st one is neither.
5) Wrong Facebook app icon in first image
6) Facebook, Inc. not Facebook Inc.
7) Facebook discourages multiple accounts, so why the "Add Account"?
8) Adresses lol
9) Send button should read Share in 2nd images
10) Why is there a @ symbol next to the spacebar? Only Twitter uses this.

And that's just what I can see!
