ioS 6 for the iPhone 3GS

The link for ioS 6 for the iPhone 3GS is not working yet.

The link is not functioning at this time, but it may point to support for the three-year old iPhone though the next year. It may also indicate that Apple is not done selling the iPhone 3GS in the U.S. and other markets. Links like this appeared ahead of the iOS 5 beta release last year.

Banners are already hung thought the Moscone Center proclaiming the arrival of iOS 6. Apple calls iOS 6 the “World’s Most Advanced Mobile Operating System”.

Noticeably absent is the original iPad, which is only 2 years old, with similar performance to the iPhone 4, which will get iOS 6.

The iPhone 3GS runs well on iOS 5.1.1, especially for an old phone. Adam Mills shares his impressions of iOS 5.1.1 on the iPhone 3GS.
