iPhone 3GS Will Not Support iOS 5.x?

Mobile-Review Editor-in-Chief Eldar Murtazin is reporting that Apple will drop support for the iPhone 3GS in iOS 5.x.

Murtazin made the following tweet earlier today.

Just one comment. Apple iPhone 3Gs wont be upgradable to iOS 5.x. iPhone 4 will.

The source of Murtazin's statement is unclear; however, considering that iOS 5.x is supposed to be a large update it makes sense for Apple to try and avoid the same problems it had with the iPhone 3G on iOS 4.x.

It also seems to suggest that iOS 5.x would a launch alongside a new device; otherwise, Apple would be left with only one device on its latest operating system.

I disagree, first and foremost given the fact that IOS 5 is supposed to if you believe rumors to launch either june/july or september time frame. Apple is still selling the 3gs from its store, and Im sure quite a few people would be angry if they are not allowed to upgrade to 5.0 if they had just purchased a new iphone. As with Iphone ios 4.0 and 3g support I am sure there will be support for 5.0 for 3gs thru a certain version, remember the 3gs is not the weak piece of crap that the 3g was!
