    Pretty sure on my first iPhone, Facebook was baked in, in some form to the settings menu, mainly for allowing syncing of pictures for your contacts and other details too.

    That seemed to get removed a while back, around the same time the baked in version of YouTube vanished.

    Apple are denying that they ask for it or had access to it under any deals with facebook.

    Massive, evil company denies being evil, there's a shocker...

    I wouldn't trust Apple to tell the truth about whether water was wet.

    I was given a shiny new Samsung s8 by work the other day. I discovered that it has facebook imstalled and also found out that it cannot be removed. You can disable it, but not completely remove it.
