Tapping your profile picture brings up the option

Tap profile

Then Choose From Library or Take Photo

or go to a photo on Facebook and select the more *** icon

Select more

And you should receive the option there as well

Make Profile Picture

Facebook has seemed to have removed the option to upload to the Profile Pictures album.

So you will have to either upload to an album or the Mobile Uploads album then "Make Profile Picture" from there.



Make Profile Picture

2011 and before

Select Photos.
Select the "Profile Pictures" Album.
Click the camera icon in the top right.
Take a photo or choose from library.
Make Profile Picture.

Simply press and hold or long press the picture you want to make as your profile pic and voila! The option to "make profile picture" will come out.

You CAN update from iPad/iPhone Press and hold the picture when it's full screen and your options come up to make it your profile picture.

This doesn't seem to be possible in the "Touch site".

Although, when you go to the "Mobile site" (http://m.facebook.com), there seems to be an option to "Make Profile Picture" whenever you're looking at a photo.
