Facebook extended Timeline access to iPhone users with an app update released today.

In addition to the social network's new profile design, version 4.1 of the iPhone app provides mobile users access to their friend lists, subscribers, and subscriptions. Facebook says the app also makes it easier to view, upload, and comment on photos.

Facebook says iPad support for mobile Timeline will be coming soon. Timeline, which shows all the updates a person has added to Facebook since they joined the site, was rolled out to Web browsers and Android devices worldwide on Thursday.

The update may help the iPhone app retake its lead in popularity for accessing the social network. Facebook for Android now has 58.3 million average daily users compared with an average of 57.4 million daily users who use the iPhone app to read the site, according to stats complied by AppData.
