Weâ€™ve all heard the saying before â€“ read the fine print. Good advice for those entering into a contract, buying something expensive and/or on installment, and even when it comes to iOS firmware releases.
Case and point, hereâ€™s the fine print on iOS 6, which, depending on your device, could be the bearer of bad news, especially if youâ€™re looking forward to all of the cool new treats Appleâ€™s latest IOS firmware has to offer:
As you can see, not everyone will be treated equally with this update, which actually has been the practice every since.
Whatâ€™s a bit surprising here is that some features, such as Facetime over cellular, is limited only to the iPhone 4S and the new iPad. Why surprising? Because Facetime works on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 and I donâ€™t see any reason why Facetime over cellular shouldnâ€™t be supported on these iOS devices. The same goes with VIP list and VIP and Flagged smart malboxes, why wonâ€™t it be available on the iPod touch?
Anyway, itâ€™s pretty much useless to complain â€˜cause Appleâ€™s pretty much set in their ways.
So just treat this as a heads up so you wonâ€™t be surprised why the heck is your iOS 6-powered 4th gen iPod touch or iPhon 3GS missing a feature or two (or three).
Hat tip to Redmondpie for this one.
