When you try to access Facebook on any smartphone or tablet web browser, you will land on the mobile version of the site. The look and features of the mobile version will be different and less than the traditional desktop site. That doesn’t mean you can’t access the Facebook desktop version on iPhone.
In this guide, we will discuss the 3 methods you can use on the respective web browser to view the Facebook full site on iPhone. These methods are applicable for iPad, iPad mini, and Pro too.
1) Access Facebook Desktop Version on iPhone with any Browsers
This method will work on most of the browsers on your iPhone.
a) Log in to your Facebook account from the browser. Usually, it will redirect to the mobile version (m.facebook.com). You need to log in to your account before proceeding to the next step.
b) Once you have successfully logged in from any web browser on your iPhone, change the web address to www.facebook.com/home.php.
If that doesn’t work, change the link to FB desktop login URL: https://www.facebook.com/login.php.
This will open the desktop full version of Facebook on your iPhone as below. It doesn’t matter which browser or iOS version you use, but it works!

2) Access FB Desktop Version by Safari on iPhone
If you are a Safari web browser user, you have an additional option to request the desktop version.
Open the Safari browser and go to facebook.com; as expected, you will be redirected to the mobile version.
Before or after logging in to your FB account, tap AA and select ‘Request Desktop Site’ as shown below. if you don’t find the AA option, you need to choose the ‘share’ option in the older version of Safari.
This should get the FB full desktop login or home page screen on your iPhone with the Safari browser.
3) How to Access Facebook’s Full Desktop Site on Chrome/Brave/Edge
The following steps will work if you have chromium-based browsers like Google Chrome, Edge, or Brave on your iPhone.
Like we did earlier, type the FB address on Chrome/Edge and request for the Desktop site.
Once the website is opened, tap the 3 dots at the bottom of the browser.
Scroll down to the extra options and tap “Request Desktop Site” on the Chrome browser to get FB desktop full site on iPhone.
Brave browse has the same options as Chrome for the Facebook desktop version on iPhone.
If you use Mozilla firefox as your default browser on your iPhone, the steps are the same. Open the FB site, then click on the 3 dots near the address bar and request the desktop version.
Even though it is not needed to browse the full desktop site of Facebook on the small screen of your iPhone or tablet, in case you need it, this guide would be helpful.
FB’s mobile version and the app always allow doing everything we normally do on the full version of the desktop site.
