Apple So, iOS 6 will make its way to devices all the way back to the 3GS... But many key features are not available at all on the 3GS, and even the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 are seeing features held back. "Some features, like the VIP List for email, the Offline Reading List, and Shared Photo Stream won't work on the iPhone 3GS. Even flagship iOS features like Flyover, turn-by-turn navigation, and FaceTime over cellular won't work on recent devices like the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2 - not to mention the iPhone 3GS." Pretty scummy and misleading.

"Pretty scummy and misleading."

I'm still waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich to come to my barely 2yr old HTC G2.

I had to install Cyanogenmod just to get it to 2.3.4 version of Gingerbread last year.

The 3GS is a year older and is still getting updates. I don't consider that scummy at all.
