The iPhone 3GS will most likely run iOS 6, the latest version of Apple’s popular iPhone software.
The news comes hours before the official iOS 6 announcement at WWDC 2012, which kicks off at 10 AM Pacific today.
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”.
We expect that Apple will announce the iOS 6 beta during the keynote, with links available for developers to download the iOS 6 beta by the end of the day.
The leaked iOS 6 beta download links include links to versions for the following Apple devices.
- Consumer: 4th Generation
- Enterprise: 4th Generation
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.
