Facebook Integration with iOS: “Stay Tuned”

Apple CEO Tim Cook, in an interview with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the AllThingsD D10 conference, said “stay tuned” on a few occasions when asked about Facebook integration with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Walt: But, on my Apple devices, Twitter comes up automatically. Facebook has 900 million users, why can’t I do that?

Cook: Our relationship is very solid. I saw Sheryl earlier and you can ask her on our break. Stay tuned on this one.

Kara: Aren’t you [and Facebook] kind of must haves for each other?

Cook: For us, we want to provide customers simple and elegant ways to do the things they want to do. Facebook has hundreds of millions of customers. So, anyone that has an iPhone or iPad, we want them to have the best experience with Facebook on those platforms. So stay tuned.

Cook could be suggesting that Facebook integration will be part of iOS 6, which is expected to be previewed at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference this June 11th – 15th. The WWDC 2012 keynote takes place on Monday, June 11 at 10:00 AM Pacific, and this could very well be what Cook is telling everyone to “stay tuned” for.
