In 2016, the most well-known app of all times Facebook decided to create a smaller and more handy version of its popular messenger and thus provided the users with the Facebook Lite Messenger that weighs 10MB and flaunts all of the major messaging features but in a renovated, extremely simple and decently functional manner. However, since the launch of Facebook Lite Messenger, the condensed messaging app was only made available for the Android users who got to choose between the two Facebook messenger options depending on their preference and internet access.
Unfortunately, iOS devices weren’t equipped with the Facebook Lite Messenger which as a result left them with only the original Facebook messenger that weighs much more than the Lite version – 100MB in some cases – and is extra embroidered and full of features. Thankfully, many owners of iOS devices won’t have to wait long since Facebook Lite is making a debut and can be installed on the iOS phones and tablets after it was displayed on the App Store recently.
Facebook Lite Messenger for phones and tablets
After two years of its initial release, Facebook Lite Messenger is finally going live on the iOS devices as the users can check out the App Store and install the stripped-down Facebook messenger easily. The iOS Facebook Lite version weighs about 16.5MB which is more than the Android version but is still significantly less than the main Facebook messenger. As a start, the iOS Facebook Lite version is available in specific regions and will be rolled out to other countries, hopefully, in the upcoming weeks. Of course, the Facebook Lite app is not only condensed in its size, but it also exerts less data and enables the users to check out their messages even in the worst internet connection periods.

A Facebook official assured that the Facebook Lite Messenger is definitely going to be made available for more iOS devices across the world; the plan to create a lightweight app version for both the Facebook and the messenger apps was carried out by the developers at the Facebook company in the attempt to empower the Facebook users with the rightful app that’s not only fully functional but also small in size. Reportedly, after releasing the Facebook Lite Messenger to the iOS devices, the main Facebook Lite app is also going be available on the App Store.
