Device limitations in iOS 6

Apple recently launched iOS 6 for developers (it’s coming for end users this fall), and the new iOS iteration brought along a whole gamut of features. But it goes without saying that quite a few of the most cutting edge features introduced in iOS 6 will not be compatible with iDevices running on older hardware. Apple has published a list of device based feature limitations on their official website for iOS 6:
  • Flyover and turn-by-turn navigation will be available only on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later. Cellular data charges may apply.
  • Siri will be available only on iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd generation) and requires Internet access. Siri may not be available in all languages or all areas, and features may vary by area. Cellular data charges may apply.
  • Shared Photo Streams requires iOS 6 on iPhone 4 or later or iPad 2 or later, or a Mac computer with OS X Mountain Lion. An up-to-date browser is required for accessing shared photo streams on the web.
  • FaceTime over a cellular network requires iPhone 4S or iPad (3rd generation) with cellular data capability. Carrier data charges may apply. FaceTime is not available in all countries.
  • VIP list and VIP and Flagged smart mailboxes will be available on iPhone 4 or later and iPad 2 or later.
  • Offline Reading List will be available on iPhone 4 or later and iPad 2 or later.
  • Made for iPhone hearing aids require iPhone 4S.
  • Find My Friends and Find My iPhone enable you to locate iOS devices only when they are on and connected to a registered Wi-Fi network or have an active data plan. Not available in all areas.”
