Since the time Steve Jobs was still alive, Facebook and Apple has never have a stable relationship among each other
New documents brought out in the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Epic Games shed light on the history of Facebook and Apple. Documents reveal that the relationship between the two companies has been in turmoil since 2011.

When Apple released its first-generation iPad in 2010, software chief Scott Forstall emailed Steve Jobs. and Phil Schiller about his meeting with Mark Zuckerburg about putting Facebook on the tablet.

According to a CNBC report, Facebook's main concern is that tech giant Cupertino will not allow Facebook apps for iPad including "embedded apps." Forstall wrote:
“I just discussed with Mark how they should not include apps embedded in the Facebook iPad app - nor in the embedded web view or as a folder with links that will redirect to Safari.

Unsurprisingly, he's not happy with this as he sees these apps as part of the "whole Facebook experience" and isn't sure if they should use iPad apps without them. Everything works in Safari, so he hesitates to push people to a native app with less functionality, even if the native app is better for non-third-party app features.

Facebook wants Apple to give in and give out four suggestions, but Steve Jobs doesn't want to respond to all. Steve Jobs responded on the iPad and he mistakenly called his social networking partner's name "I agree - if we remove the Fecebook's third recommendation that makes sense."

Forstall followed up after a few days and said Zuckerburg didn't like Apple's coping method.

The relationship between the two giants does not appear to have improved in a decade. The two companies are also engaged in a court battle over Apple's new security features.

Recent reports also suggest that Facebook may be looking into the possibility of launching an antitrust lawsuit against Apple.
