    Thats a shame. It's compatible as far back as the iphone 3gs, but no ipad 1.

    Many of the important features are not possible on the original iPad due to its limitations. Several iOS 6 features are not available on the iPad 2, which is a pity, but understandable.

    Yeah I think it's crap what devices they decide it should work on and what each device gets.

    I don't see why the 3GS with only a 600 Mhz chip should get it but a iPad 1 with a 1Ghz chip doesn't get it.

    But hopefully the jailbreaking community should be able to bring a few of the missing features to the iOS6 supported devices that aren't officially provided. Like they have done with Siri.

    So what missing features are you dying to have on your iPad 1?

    There were othe considerations involved such as the fact that the iPad 1 only has 250 Mb of RAM.

    Does this mean that when iOS 6 comes out there will never be anymore updates for iPad1 at all ?
