    Following on from the excitement of Apple’s announcement of iOS 6 at its WWDC today, the obligatory press release to accompany the announcement brings with it some sad news for owners of the original iPad. There it is, in black and white, the news that iOS 6 will only be available for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the new iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch fourth generation. Here’s what Apple’s senior vice president of iOS Software, Scott Forstall, said about the new update. Sounds great, but only if you’ve got an iPad 2 or 3.

    Apple never announces when new iOS versions will be released. However, based on their past history, we expect the release to be available to the general public sometime this fall.

    Really, that's about as close as we can get with a guess...

    Thanks for that, KayKayKay. I was just winging the answer...

    Pretty good guess, though, yeah? :)
