What do you predict will happen? The iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G became unsupported on iOS 4, do you think the iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G will be unsupported by iOS 5? Vote up there^ I think it will since it will be 'outdated' in Apple's eyes. Please Register or Log in to view images Those eyes. EDIT: I think Apple's cycle of removing support for devices goes like this (thanks to Xenago): 1st Generation (iPT 1G, iP EDGE): major releases 1.0-3.0 then unsupported 2nd Generation ((iPT 2G (MC & MB), iP 3G)): major releases 2.0-4.0 then unsupported 3rd Generation (iPT 3G, iP 3GS): major releases 3.0-5.0 then unsupported 4th Generation (iPT G4, iP 4G): major releases 4.0-6.0 then unsupported And... you get my idea. However I doubt that Apple will keep creating iPhones and iPods. It's gotta start a brand new original generation sometime.
