Remember the story that we covered earlier this morning which saw Facebook for iPhone getting upgraded to version 3.5? Well, there was more than meets the eye with this update, where a bunch of new features that came alongside also saw the shedding of some code. In fact, all code related to the iPad version was removed in this new update, and to put it in layman’s parlance, you can no longer install the official Facebook app for iPad before it actually rolls out.

Previously, the Facebook app for iPhone did come with some some hidden code for the app’s iPad counterpart stashed away somewhere, and the moment it was discovered, hackers rubbed their hands in glee, wondering just how they could make use of that code to install the official Facebook app for iPad through the back door – which is via the iPhone release.

Too bad this is no longer possible simply because there is no more iPad code available. Any idea on whether this was done to prevent users from installing the iPad app before the official version rolls out, or could it be an indicator as to whether the iPad version is well on its way to the App Store?
