Phone Apple iOS 6 not compatible with iPad 1

Just tried to update the trusty iPad 1 with the new iOS 6 and “computer says no”!

Then checked the apple website and it is not compatible.

In fact many of the new features of iOS 6 are only compatible with the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later.

So that means the iPhone 4 won’t get many of the new features either. 

I sense a ploy by Apple to get us to update our phones!
