When you open the Facebook website on your iPhone, your web browser will load the site’s mobile version. If you want to access Facebook’s desktop version, you may do so in Safari, Chrome, Edge, and Firefox.

Almost all web browsers on your iPhone allow you to request a site’s desktop version. When you utilize this feature, your browser loads the desktop version of the site.
