Apple made headlines yesterday with the reveal of the iPhone 5. They didn't make mention of it during the conference, but the company also released the final version of iOS 6 to developers. Facebook is now tirelessly working away to provide an updated SDK for all iOS 6 developers.

Facebook released an updated SDK for iOS last month that included a lot of the new features including integration of Facebook into everything iOS. The company is now working on an update for the SDK to include iOS 6 integration. A major selling point of iOS 6 is its integration with Facebook and developers will want to get in on that as soon as possible. There is no timetable for when the updated SDK will be ready, but Facebook says to stay tuned for the announcement.

Outside of iOS development, Facebook announced a few other goodies for developers as part of today's Operation Developer Love post. The first update is an option to suppress Like notifications via Open Graph. They realized that notifications between duplicated between apps and Facebook proper might get annoying. Developers can now suppress one of the Like notifications so that a user only gets notified once. Check out the documentation for more details.

Facebook also announced an update to their ever-evolving privacy policy. Today's update makes it mandatory for developers who use Facebook to link to their app's privacy policy in app marketplace listings. You can read the updated privacy policy requirements here.

Facebook capped off the week with 234 bug reports. Out of those, 118 bugs were accepted and 27 were fixed. You can check out the list of fixes at the blog post.
