“The new features make the SDK a natural extension of Apple’s iOS environment,” Facebook engineer Jason Clark said. “After iOS 6 launches to users, the SDK will automatically use the native Facebook Login in iOS 6 when available. The new features make the SDK more efficient by eliminating the need to develop and manage common tasks.”
