Unless you’re part of the iOS developer program, you won’t be able to get your hands on iOS 6 until this fall. Unfortunately, the most advanced mobile operating system in the world will not support every device.

Even though there is no official date for the release of iOS 6, we do know it will come this fall, likely with the release of the iPhone 5. When released to the public, it will support the following devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad 2
  • New iPad
  • iPod touch 4G

This means that if you have a first generation iPad or an older iPod touch, you will not be able to get iOS 6.

  • wow, not even on the first gen iPad? that’s a bit of a disappointment.

    • No Whammy

      Not even disappointment…it’s atrocious. iPad is more like a laptop, it shouldn’t be out of date every two years like a phone is.

      • just because it doesnt get iOS6 doesnt mean it automatically becomes a paperweight…

      • Yeah, but the 3GS from the year before got iOS 6.

      • No Whammy

        @OrangeSn0w, exactly. If the 3GS can handle the 3D maps, the Gen1 iPad should. I have a problem with Apple docking perfectly good hardware to bump sales.

  • Ernesto Carrillo

    So iphone 5 or no???

    • Of course iPhone 5, when they release it or mention it.

    • We’ll probably find that out in September.

  • No new iDevices 🙁

  • Woot can’t wait

  • Érico Gonçalves

    why ipad 1st gen is out?

    • No Whammy

      To entice you to give them more money.

  • You might as well just say that it will be supported by iPad 4… iPhone 6 not 5 by the way

  • Érico Gonçalves

    i was expecting for a new interface…

  • jose castro

    wow im actually not impressed at all…. this year was disappointing………. but we will haft to see what happens when it actually comes out…. there are only a few things that i liked but nothing really new….. 🙁

  • Adriano Matos

    NOOOOOO!! Why the 1st Gen iPad is left out??? 🙁 You suck Tim Cook! iPhoto doesn’t come out for the 1st gen, Photoshop Touch also! But i have them! So tech issues aren’t the issue!! iPhone 3GS is supported and the 1st Gen iPad not! Bullshit!

    • I totally Agree, like 3Gs is any better than IPad 1! The only difference is that the 3GS has an Camera (except other basic stuff like a Screen) -.- BullSh*t!

      • i think the difference is that the 3GS is still avaliable whereas they dont sell the original ipad anymore

    • complete ripoff! i am still happy with my 32gb iPod touch which other than a camera has basically the same specs as iPhone 3GS. And what about people who have 1st gen iPads? They shelled out anywhere from 399-599 or more and now they can’t upgrade.

  • jose castro

    ya this year kinda sucks but there are some cool things

  • twited21

    Omg I can’t wait 🙂 almost worth losing a jailbreak for

    • Shadowlink

      Ur funnt

      • Shadowlink


  • will siri be available for ipod touch

    • Nope no Siri for the iPhone4 only iPhone4s and new iPad I so wanted Siri for my iPhone 4

  • CashDolla83

    I don’t know why anyone was expecting a new iPhone…The only reason the 4S wasn’t announced till October was because of the fact the WHITE Iphone 4 was delayed to the market last year (April or May) so Apple needed time to get that money they missed out on. no way they could release white iphone 4 in April/May and then release a whole new phone in June,Get real people.

  • Hmm not much this year but man iOS 5 had a lot of shit in it so its not too bad. I think the biggest amount of work went into the new Maps so that took a lot of time out of putting in more stuff into this years iOS. Maybe with more updates well get some more stuff here and there and possibly when the new iPhone is out.

  • Mahbub Hussain

    It’s because maybe iOS 6 is only for the selling devices from apple, iPad 1 is not being sold anymore that goes for iPod touch third gen too.

    • Daniel Zheng

      then that’s just stupid, because the ipod touch 3g will have the pleasure to update to the iOS6 and the ipad first generation will not..

  • Is the Safari update with in the Mountain Lion update?

  • Anoush Khan

    Now I am thoroughly mad at Apple. iOS 6 does not support the iPod touch 3 or the iPad 1, yet it still supports the iPhone 3GS. The iPod touch 3 and iPad 1 are so much more powerful that the 3GS. Why are they excluded???

    • lol the 3GS is faster than the ipod touch 3rd gen 😛

      • and ipad 1 is faster than the underclocked iphone 4

      • Anoush Khan

        Not really, all around the internet I have read stories of people’s 3GS on iOS5 being very laggy.

    • Bro, it is business and if nobody are buying new or upgrade idevices, who are going to pay for apple employee’s salary……lol

  • iPod Touch 4G have use Siri for iOS 6???

  • So the iPad 1 is not supported? Why is the iPhone 4 supported? They both have A4 chips… So why isn’t the first gen iPad supported? I’m sure someone will find a way to port iOS 6 into the first iPad… I hope…

  • Nick Potts

    The iPad has more pixels to push and less ram. That is probably why they don’t offer it on the iPad but do on the 3gs. I have ios 6 installed on my 3gs, it is verrrrrry slow. No 3d maps and missing a lot of the features as well.
