As of late, you can get the Facebook Lite app on your iPhone, too. For those of you who don’t know, Facebook Lite is the lightweight version of the normal Facebook app, that occupies less storage space and does not consume much data either. Facebook for iOS gets about 500 MB in size and your data will won’t even be able to be with you for some time, since it uses a lot. If you need that space desperately, and you also want to save the mobile data, you need to download the Facebook Lite app. We’ve written this article to give you the tips on how to install it, without using a jailbreak.
How to install Facebook Lite on your iPhone
The app takes about 5 MB.
First of all, you need to open the Safari browser and go to https://appleid.apple.com/account. Then, create a spoofed Apple account. Go to the link and then use your secondary email address to create a new Apple ID. You need to select Turkey as the country. Otherwise it won’t work. Go to Settings, then to iTunes & App Store and simply tap on the Apple ID that you just created. Then, you need to tap on this link: https://itunes.apple.com/tr/app/facebook-lite/. This link will ask you to open it in an app store and you’ll get a notification – click on it. If not, you can directly open the iTunes app store from your iPhone and search Facebook Lite and tap on download.
This way, the app will start installing. After it’s done, the icon will appear (just like every new app) on the last page of your home screen.
As said above, the app takes only 5 MB on your storage and you’ll also get to keep more of your data.
