Rumor: Facebook preparing Graph Search for its iOS apps

Sources familiar with the Facebook iOS apps have reported to 9to5Mac that the company is preparing to bring Graph Search to mobile. Facebook’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps could all receive the update in the near future.

If you’ve forgotten, Graph Search is Facebook’s feature that makes every post, like and comment you’ve ever made searchable. This means you can type in a query like “Friends who like Breaking Bad” and you’ll be given results for friends who have liked the Breaking Bad Facebook Page.

Facebook is also rumored to be working on redesigning the Messenger app, which isn’t much of a surprise as Facebook recently updated its iOS apps to fit iOS 7’s style. Messenger is said to be getting a new feature where it can scan your iPhone’s address book to see which friends use Messenger. This will help Facebook strengthen its messaging stronghold, competing with Apple’s own iMessage and Google’s Hangouts.

There is no expected release date for this Facebook update.
