Facebook readies iOS app update featuring 'Chat Heads' messaging

The company is also planning to release an update to its iOS apps that will incorporate some of the recent design-themed changes to News Feed that Facebook rolled out to the desktop last month. Those changes are designed to reduce clutter and provide a visually richer News Feed highlighting photographs and content from publishers. This update will be most noticeable on the iPad, the company said.

Facebook said the iOS update will be made available later Tuesday in the Apple App Store.
