The Facebook app for iPhone has been updated to support the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but that update's had an unintended consequence: tiny text. At least it's text that appears smaller, thanks to the larger screens of the new iPhones leading to users holding the phones farther from their faces. Thanks to the update, interface items are the physical same size across the board for all iPhone models… and that means they seem awfully small on the 6 and 6 Plus.
The update to version 16.0 (we've got to have a talk about these version numbers, Facebook) doesn't seem to have brought any other notable features, though in this instance we're going to petition Facebook to build in proper support for the text size preferences that are part of iOS. It's not much to ask, because the text that was already on the small side on the iPhone 5s is getting frustratingly so for the iPhone 6 and hilariously so on the 6 Plus.
But, we'll take proper larger screen support with its sharper images and text when we can get it. In the meantime, you can grab the new update to Facebook now for free from the App Store.
