Apple is planning to integrate Facebook features into the iPhone OS 4.0, according to Business Insider sources.
Business Insider thinks that Apple is going to build Facebook contact syncing directly into the iPhone software, and also planning to integrate Facebook Connect directly into its software developers kit.
Our source tells us that Apple is at least going to build Facebook contact syncing directly into the iPhone software, so you can pull Facebook contacts into your iPhone’s phonebook.
We also hear that Apple could be integrating Facebook Connect directly into its software developers kit so programmers can more easily add Facebook “social” features to their apps.
Business Insider also thinks that there may also be some sort of Facebook messaging features into the iPhone, however, this part is pure speculation, they note.
We also anticipate — but don’t know — that Apple may build some sort of Facebook messaging features into the iPhone. Perhaps you’ll be able to send Facebook messages to contacts just as easily as text messages. This wouldn’t cost any money — it wouldn’t use up your text message allotment — and could be just as instantaneous. But again, this part is pure speculation.
