    I wonder how many people will put off to upgrade with the supposedly lack of Street View & ad-free YouTube. Some got quite 'upset' about those removals. Although Apple stated Googles' contract expired and they didn't renew, IIRC.

    Will the download of iOS6 for current iPhones be less, percentage-wise, compared to iOS5?

    With the vast majority of mobile traffic coming from Apple devices Google have no choice I would have thought but to make apps for anything missing in iOS6 and pray people download them.

    I wonder if the 4s will gain Panorama after update to iOS 6?

    Any developers out there know how iOS 6 performs on an iPhone 3GS? What features have been left out? Does it feel cumbersome and irritating like iOS 5 does for me right now, or is it optimized for speed on a 3GS?

    According to this it will:

    However, I suspect it may be a mistake - much like where they seem to have the model numbers mixed up here:

    Unless I missed something, I wish they talked more about car manufacturers and siri, I would love to have this feature in my Audi. But either way I can't wait for IOS 6. The other thing that I was hoping for was some type of case or smart cover for the new phone. Seems like revenue they are missing out on and until other manufacturers get there hands on the device, they won't be able to start making cases.

    I have no idea what was on the end of that, but it wasn't there when I copied.

    guys, is there a chance that the iPhone 4 gets siri or isn't it even possible due to lack of hardware?

    They did release a YouTube app, but I haven't seen the Maps app.

    That's a valid question: from the image on Apple's website it looks like the photo app remains 4:3 on the screen and the extra pixels on tNi (the New iPhone) are used for the shutter button and landscape slider for still/video camera setting.

    It's completely possible. It won't be happening.

    I'm running the iOS6 GM on my iPhone 4 and it's a major disappointment. It's missing a LOT of features that could run on the hardware but Apple decided to leave out to force people to upgrade.

    Well, they got their wish. I'm going to upgrade... but not to iPhone 5. I've had it with their bullshit tactics. I'm getting either the Nokia Lumnia 920 or the Samsung ATIV S, both running Windows Phone 8. And hopefully droping AT&T for Tmobile. Can't wait till Xmas!

    But you're going to a system that does it even worse, so I'm not sure if this is hypocrisy or just ignorance.

    Yeah, wouldn't it be great if every company just gave you the product of their labor for free every year? How dare they give us only some of the new functionality for free. Absolutely everything should be free.
