How to upgrade your 3GS to iOS 5?
Just a few weeks ago some rumors suggested that Apple wouldn’t support iOS 5 for the iPhone 3GS. Well, yesterday, Steve Jobs had some good news for 3GS owners: you can upgrade your 3GS to iOS 5 when it’s released this Fall.
The question, of course, is how well will it run and will any features be stripped out since the 3GS doesn’t have the more powerful processor found in the iPhone 4 and whatever processor (presumably the A5) that will be found in the next-generation iPhone?
If the video below from a Polish developer is any indication, it seems to to run just fine. It’s still a little early to tell what, if any, features are missing, but I’m sure we’ll have the full skinny before final release candidate of iOS 5 goes live.
Note to iPhone 3G owners: as expected, you won’t be able to upgrade to iOS 5. However, iOS 5 will run on the iPod Touch 3G.
