    Since both the 3GS and Iphone 4 are supported by iOS6 it stands to reason that any app that has a phone equivalent will run on the more powerful iPad.

    As for developers simply morphing their ipad only apps to no longer work on an ipad 1, I think that fear is overblown. At least for another year or so.

    And anyone still using an iPad 1 is probably not doing video/music editing anyway.

    There are some apps that are stand alone and don't require a connection to a host server to work.These type of apps will continue to work as long as you have them on your iPad.I have several apps on my iPad that are no longer available in the app store but continue to work fine.

    I still have my original iPad, letting it out as a loaner for family who need something temporarily, or want to try it out. I know it will not be abandoned by Apple, but it will not upgrade to iOS 6. Look at the features that are in iOS 6, and they really have no place on the original iPad. It does not have the microphones or processors to handle Siri. It does not have cameras, so FaceTime and Photos are no good. It cannot support 4G, so many other features are not practical. We may see some upgrades to iOS 5 as things go along, to give more features to older models, but long past the life rating of any iPad, we will see support from Apple. This isn't Android where you can have several devices purchased at one time, with a different OS on each one, and no way to upgrade.

    I'm sticking with my ipad 1 until March 2013. I figure the New iPad will be much cheaper than. I just can't justify spending $700+ for a 32gb 3G model right now to get a higher res screen. That's the one thing I would want since my iPad is a glorified e-reader/timewaster.

    I use my 4S for facetime and picture taking.

    That's why my post said some apps. I didn't say all apps face death, lol. And of course, everyone uses different apps. I think that should go without saying, but if we're spelling things out for those who might need things spelled out, OK.

    The overblown thing just depends on which apps you use and how important they are to you. The funny thing was, on another thread, someone said that and then on a follow up post he said, crud, you're right, because one of my apps just stopped working (this was during one of the iOS 5 upgrades) because the developer gave up on it.
