Will the iPhone 3GS be compatible with iOS 5?

  • I'm sorry, but this doesn't belong here. Googling your exact query not only answers your question, but also shows how well the device can actually run the new OS. Again, I'm sorry to be rude, but this is just sheer laziness and could have been answered in "0.14 seconds" using Google. – user10355 Sep 6 '11 at 20:34

    How is this question localized? I understand it could be closed for "JFGI", but there are millions of 3GS users out there. – wjl Sep 11 '11 at 16:09
