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.

I'm not sure on that one. But, you asked about the 3GS.

Companies distinguish different grades of products all the time, though, so it may be as simple as that Apple wants to reserve that for their $199 model and not their $99 model. Given that it is a free upgrade, I can't complain much on that count.

I thought a defining property of a rhetorical question was that the answer was known?
