    I thought this was a memory issue?

    The iPad 1 is being left behind. The OS has outgrown the hardware. There are already people who are suggesting that ios5.1.1 slows down the iPad 1.

    I think Apple would rather that us iPad 1 users start upgrading hardware. Even if the iPad 1 could run IOS6 trouble free, keeping the operating system fully up to date would be bad for business :)

    I'm holding off getting a new iPad until our local wireless carrier starts offering LTE.. Then I'll consider it.

    I don't want iOS 6 on iPad 1. They barely got iOS 5 to work reasonably on iPad 1, and that took upgrades to 5.1.1 to do it properly with iPad 1's paltry RAM.

    Better that they stop firmware upgrades when reasonable, so our older hardware can at least keep functioning. Apple has had experience over-upgrading firmware beyond hardware capability.

    With iPhone 3G, they upgraded firmware too far and made the browsing and apps use basically non-functional. That led to class-action attempts against Apple.

    I'm not lawsuit happy, but I thought it was crazy that they basically killed the smart part of my iPhone 3G by over-upgrading.

    So if ram is an issue, why would the iPhone 3GS be supported and not the ipad? They have the same ram, it's one thing to stop support for them when the hardware isn't functioning, but to support one and not another with equal or greater hardware? So to provide the option for 3GS users to upgrade, but not the iPad 1 owners, it's just messed up. It should be both or neither.

    I would think that supporting iPhone apps on the same RAM would be less difficult than supporting iPad apps.

    That sounds about right. What they should do though is allow users to upgrade, but still sign for ios 5.1.1 downgrade if they choose. But hey can't change anything now right...

    If they don't think they could support it reasonably, I doubt they'd want to offer it at all, even as an option. Imagine the screaming among unhappy customers who'd spent time and effort to upgrade, only to find out that the upgrade gummed up their hardware, only to be told, "Well, you could downgrade."

    So, apple would rather lose customers than fix the problems that came with upgrading to ios5. Actually "downgrading" to ios5!!! Prior to 5 I had zero complaints. Now I'm ready to use this POS for target practice! I've tried resetting, disabled apps that we're suggested, etc. and still can't enjoy using my iPad1. I guess the next thing to try is hijacking. if Apple is going to leave iPad 1's in the past why wouldn't they at least offer one more upgrade to revert back to what worked, or offer a means to reload iOS 4? With their smug attitude toward the "old" stuff, I will never buy another Apple anything.

    Um... Not going to happen.
    Not only will Apple not pay attention/care, iOS 6 would run unbearably slow on the original iPad.
