iOS 6 Dropping September 19, Golden Master Released to Developers
With today’s exciting announcement of the iPhone 5, it’s hard not to make mention of the software that gets put into the devices prior to being shipped to the customer – iOS 6. iOS 6 is Apple’s latest operating system for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches and it is coming to the public September 19th. It has been in beta since the summer and it brings more than 200 new features to iOS devices including a new Maps application, Facebook integration, and Facetime over cellular networks.
While the public release is finally coming for everybody on September 19th, Apple has launched the golden master of iOS 6 to developers today. The golden master is the version of the iOS firmware that is released just before the public release, where Apple sends developers a test copy of what is expected to be as close to the public release as possible. It also gives the company a chance to squash any last-minute bugs.
The golden master of iOS 6 is available from Apple’s developer portal and it brings today's announced Panorama feature to the iPhone 4S – this feature will be coming with the iPhone 5 too, but the iPhone 4 was left out of the fun being that it is now the low-end iPhone superseding the iPhone 3GS. Jailbreak tweaks have been able to enable this feature on the iPhone 4 in the past, so it’s likely this will happen again.
When released, iOS 6 will be compatible with:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5
- iPad 2
- The new iPad
- iPod touch 4G
- iPod touch 5G

It's beyond obnoxious that the iPhone 3GS is supported but the original iPad is not.
The iPod Touch gen 3 should be included also, if the 3GS will run it, then everything since should also.
Anywho, I'll be waiting for Jailbreak before touching iOS 6

Installs fine here on my 4S. No registration of any kind needed.
Wait... iPad 1 can't run it, but the 3GS can? The f***?
