The new update on adds the shortcuts feature on the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, the in-app peek and pop feature are still missing.
With this latest update, pressing the Facebook app icon on your iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus Home screen brings up quick shortcuts to:
- Write Post – lets you update your Facebook status which also includes location check-ins and more options.
- Upload Photo/Video – allows you to upload and share either a photo or video, which you have already saved on your iOS device, to your Facebook timeline.
- Take Photo/Video – lets you capture and share a video or photo on your profile.
Other than these three shortcuts, the app does not offer the fourth shortcut as Apple allows developers to add four quick shortcuts to the list. Within the application, Apple’s new Peek and Pop interactions are also missing. Live Photos that Apple introduced with the new iPhone models are still just normal photos when you post them on your Facebook profile. However, Apple says that Facebook will add support for Live Photos before the end of this year.
Fcebook’s own Instagram app has alredy received 3D Touch features on the new iPhone models, including the Peek and Pop feature with the app running as well as the quick shortcuts when the app icons in pressed hard. The company has also launched its promised Messenger app for Apple Watch. At this point, company’s Facebook app and the regular Messenger app are the ones missing the full 3D Touch support.
