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.

devices that are three generations out of date


There's an entire new PC range every year. That doesn't make a three year old PC "three generations out of date".

No complaint at you, but it's curious how accepting of the mobile-phone-way-of-doing-things people are becoming.

What Apple are doing is plain-and-straight hardware obsolescence through software. It’s wrong and nobody should be giving them credit for it.
