iPhone 4 and 3GS when it comes to iOS 6 - A lot less soup for you.

 

Update:  Thanks to long time listener Thomas from Tuscaloosa AL for the above image. Higher Res version here  

 

WTF?!! - I think that sums up the reaction of anyone with an iPhone 4 - that found out that in iOS 6 - the long sought after feature of turn by turn navigation - will NOT be available for them, neither will other features announced and even more will be missing for the iPhone 3GS.  From Apples site - http://www.apple.com/ios/ios6/ 

 

      • Features are subject to change. Not all features are available on all devices.
      1. ...Flyover and turn-by-turn navigation will be available only on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later....
      2. Siri will be available only on iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd generation) and requires Internet access...
      3. 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...
      4. FaceTime over a cellular network requires iPhone 4S or iPad (3rd generation) with cellular data capability...
      5. VIP list and VIP and Flagged smart mailboxes will be available on iPhone 4 or later and iPad 2 or later.
      6. Offline Reading List will be available on iPhone 4 or later and iPad 2 or later.
      7. Made for iPhone hearing aids require iPhone 4S...
       
    •  

If you want turn by turn directions with iOS 6. Only the iPhone 4S and iPhone 2012 will support turn by turn. iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS owners sorry no soup for you. Which again brings us back to the WTF phrase going through most peoples minds that own the 3GS or 4. Clearly the iPhone 4 and even 3GS can handle turn by turn directions - Tom Tom, Navigon and others have been offering up apps that do that for some time now and work great on the 3GS and 4.  

 

So the only real and logical reason for Apple to not include it is simply a marketing decision to get you to upgrade early. But really Apple if turn by turn was what would drive someone to upgrade - would they not have upgraded to an android phone where that feature is standard on even the most run of the mill get it free with a 2 yr contract type android phone. So Apple Shame on your for not getting Turn by Turn navigation working on the iPhone 4 and 3GS. You know you are still actually selling those devices. Just Sayin.

So a quick summary of what you will miss out on for the iPhone 4 and 3GS in iOS 6

 

iPhone 4 - No Soup for You Features:

Turn by Turn Navigation

Fly Over

Any Siri Features

Facetime over Cellular (Really???)

Made for iPhone Hearing Aids (This one is likely Bluetooth 4 related)

 

 

iPhone 3GS - No Soup for You Features:

All those mentioned above for iPhone 4

Shared Photo Stream (Stick with instagram)

VIP List, VIP and Flagged Smart Mailboxes (Again Really???)

Offline Reading Lists 

 

Clearly looking at this list there are features missing from the iPhone 4 and 3GS that can only be explained by one word - MARKETING.  Expect to read / hear more about this in the months to come.

Hi Rob

(Per Apple TV SDK) I wish I could believe this but it is BGR reporting the story

Steve from AZ

 
 
Hi Steve,

 

This is the "speculation of something that is likely - hey lets call it a leaked rumor from an inside source" game.

 
Many have been speculating / hoping Apple would allow Access to install Apps on Apple TV for some time.  ie release an SDK for Apple TV.  You have heard me hoping / wishing for that since Apple TV 2nd gen was released. 
 
Last year there were similar rumors / leaks right before WWDC.  
 
This year it probably will actually happen - given Tim Cooks comments recently about Apple TV. 
 
 
 
 
Point is there has been speculation about an Apple TV SDK for some time - and at least at the links above they all had the integrity to say it was just that "speculation".  
 
What BGR most likely ("most likely" added to keep away the lawyers from BGR) did was take speculation and call it a leak from a "source".
 
If they are right - they point back and say see we told you and then use said "source" to fuel some other "story" in the future. 
 
If they are wrong - no one remembers.
 
As always take what BGR says with the same level of integrity of Digitimes.
