iCloud use and/or plans for use
Authored by: Dephex Twin on Nov 30, '11 02:51:55PM

Even from a purely cynical viewpoint, what is the advantage to Apple to deliberately have some iPhone 3GSes work and others not work?

If they wanted to make iPhone 3GS obsolete, they could have just made iPhone 4 a requirement for the new OS and gotten a lot more upgrades.

On the other hand, intentionally making some iPhone 3GSes not work (a) gives the false appearance that Apple has bugs/technical issues with iCloud (a characterization that they really wanted to overcome after MobileMe), (b) only forces some 3GS users to upgrade, and (c) might even put them into legal hot water.

There is no reason why Apple would do this.

I wasn't cynical, I just stated a fact. I only speculated about possible reasons.


Have your own custom software created
