Facebook announced a new update to its iOS app today to go along with the release of iOS 7. It includes a new menu at the bottom of the app, which Facebook says makes it easier to get around.

"Now it’s easier to switch from News Feed to your friend requests, messages or notifications – just tap along the bottom of the screen," Facebook says. "You can also tap on the bottom right to see options like your Timeline, groups, events and more."

"Now if you’re using iOS 7, a translucent bar at the top of the app will change dynamically as you scroll through different photos and posts," Facebook adds. "If you’ve tapped through a story, you can also swipe from left to right to get back to News Feed."

The update will be available today. Hopefully you're able to actually download iOS 7 itself. A lot of people are having trouble.
