MG Siegler of TechCrunch today published a report claiming that Apple will be integrating Facebook into iOS 6 in a way not unlike that of the current Twitter integration within iOS 5. He cites TechCrunch’s “sources” with no mention of exactly how reliable they are. While the relationship between Apple and Facebook has been questioned for some time with claims of a possible rivalry, many have begun to believe that their sixth mobile OS release will bring support for the largest social network on the Internet.
After much speculation, Facebook integration will indeed be baked into the latest version of iOS, we’ve learned.

One thing still being hammered out according to our sources is exactly how sharing will work.
Apple’s current CEO, Tim Cook, said in an interview at D10 that ”Facebook is a great company,” “the relationship is solid,” and we should all “stay tuned” for further developments of the matter. TechCrunch’s report today only further confirms that there will be support for Mark Zuckerberg’s digital social revolution.
iOS 6 is expected to be announced at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from June 11th – 15th. Also expected at the event are new MacBooks, a reveal of the release date for Mountain Lion, and possibly a new iPhone — this is the most unlikely, however.
