Niantic has released a new software update for Pokémon GO on iOS devices, that brings the location-based game to version 1.97.1.
The update, which will require that players download 276.8 MB, has seen the developer introduce the ability to connect your Facebook account, after which you can add any Facebook friends that have done the same to your Friend List.
You can also reverse-sort your Friend List and Pokémon Storage, while Pokémon that weren’t caught in the current calendar year will have a unique indicator.
