Facebook released a big update to its iOS app today. Version 5.1 brings with it changes to Facebook Messenger, an improved photo upload process, and its new Facebook Gifts feature.

To reveal your Messenger contact list, you'll find a button at the top of the screen ready to take action. But wait, what button used to be there? Hmm...that's right! The button to change your feed from Most Popular to Most Recent.

  • To change between feeds, you'll need to tap on the button with three lines in the top-left corner of the Facebook app.

  • Now you can select your preferred feed setting. Unfortunately there isn't a clear way to determine which feed you're currently viewing, so you may find yourself repeating the above steps more often just to ensure you're viewing the right feed.
