SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Fresh off a disappointing initial public offering, Facebook is getting a big boost from Apple, which is building the social network deep into its iPhone and iPad software.
With the next version of Apple's software, users will be able to update their Facebook status by talking to their phones.
Users will also be able to "Like" movies and apps in Apple's iTunes store, Apple executive Scott Forstall said in San Francisco at Apple's annual developers' conference.
Siri, Apple's voice-command application, will add a host of new languages, including Spanish, Korean and Mandarin Chinese, Forstall said. "She" will also be able to launch applications and movies.
Apple hasn't said when the new software, iOS 6, will be available. It will run on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.
