Gotta love Apple's marketing scheme trying to get owners of older hardware to upgrade for certain features. Siri was one example when they released the iPhone 4S because Siri certainly runs on the iPhone 4 (I've had it on mine). Now they've clipped Flyover and Panorama from the iPhone 4 when those are 2 of the bigger updates people were going to want to see. I know this ploy Apple does makes sense business-wise, but it's kind of insulting having Apple feel like they need to make people upgrade their hardware. I was already planning on getting the iPhone 5, I don't need an extra push.

Anyway, that's all I've found so far after upgrading to iOS 6 on my iPhone 4 and I'm sure there will be a few more things that I'm not able to do. I'm off my soap box.

I want to know what I can't do on my 3GS...

Going to have to make sure Audible works before I upgrade - or will iOS 6 even install on a 3GS?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

So far, it seems about the same as iOS 5. A few of the screens are different looking and I haven't noticed any of my apps missing other than YouTube, but that's available as a download in the App Store.

iOS 6 will install on the 3GS, but it may run even slower than iOS 5 does, and it will be lacking at least the same features it lacks for the iPhone 4, if not more. These removed features makes it basically feel like iOS 5, but with some menu screens looking different and with Passbook if you even were interested in using that. The maps app is about the same as it used to be, but the map just has a different skin.

All in all, if you don't have an iPhone 4S, it's not really worth it unless any of the smaller features intrigued you.

Also, iOS 6 just released and there is still not a more efficient way to close multi-tasking apps... Still tap one by one. And Apple wonders why people jailbreak their devices. Also, the folders can still only hold 12 items. They need to just add scrolling to folders already like Infini-folders. I'm not sure how nobody in the development team could use more than 12 apps in a folder. It's bad when you have 2-3 folders for the same type of apps because one folder can only hold 12 items.

I have an IP4 and have been contemplating whether or not to upgrade to IOS6. I don't do social networking Twitty-Pages type stuff and also have no real interest in Passbook, Do Not Disturb, or Photostream. All in all, my IP4 is stable on IOS5 and I'm at a loss as to whether it's worth the upgrade in my case. Not slamming IOS6, just not sure it is a value aded proposition for me right now.

I would say it is a waste of time for you. That is about all that is added to the IP4 anyway, so it makes sense to stay where your at. DND is a nice feature as I usually carry the phone to bed and there are times when something comes through and disturbs me.

That pretty much validates what I was thinking. I can probably live without DND. Thanks for the input!

I had infini-folders installed at one point when I was jailbroken. I was not impressed. It was extremely buggy and would often lag when trying to scroll.

It's one thing to exclude the 3GS from a lot of features, but I can't believe the iPhone 4 is so much less capable of running some of the things that the iPhone 4S can. Ok, Siri was used to differentiate the 4 and 4S, but no flyover or turn-by-turn in maps? I'd love to know the technical reasons for this..though I suspect it's purely marketing as the OP said..
