How to Post a “Via iPhone 5″ Status Update on Facebook!

Well, the iPhone 5 may well be coming in September, or no matter what date-month-time, Steve just sent us the upcoming iPhone 5 through courier! Well, yes! Just to annoy Samsung further on the fact that Samsung could not be granted access to the upcoming iPhone 5 and iPad 3? You can just make up anything! Because a web developer from Indonesia, Alfian Khoirul Bahroin, has just come up with a cool Facebook app that allows you to put fake status updates that read “via iPhone 5″, accompanied by an exciting Apple logo at the bottom of the status update. The name of the app itself if iPhone 5.

All you need to do is firstly, login in to your Facebook and go here!

You’ll be presented with the following permission to accept:

Post Facebook Status - via iPhone 5

Pressing the ‘Allow’ button will mean that you permit the app to some basic and crucial information of yours, such as your name, user id, gender, list of friends, networks, profile picture and information shared with everyone – just like any other Facebook app. Once you press the ‘Allow’ button,  you’ll also grant access to the app to post status messages, photos, notes and videos on your wall, though it’ll only update your status in actual.

So when you press the “Allow button”, you’re taken to the following page:

Post Facebook Status via iPhone 5 - Update Status

What you see in the above image is my current status update. Now I’m going to update my status by entering text in the text box given. To ease off things, I’ll keep the next status update, the same as the current one, which is for instance: “Where are you Dark Knight? The Gotham \’country\’ needs you! 27 got killed today in the latest drone attack!”.

Press the “Update Status” button and you get the following confirmation as the next page:

Post Facebook Status via iPhone 5 - Status Updated

And this is how my status looks after the updation through the app. See the key arrow and underline indicators in red:

Facebook Status - via iPhone 5

There you go! This could be your day to show off your innate Apple fan boy’s fictitious pre-release perks!
