If you buy a new iPhone 4 now, will IOS 6 come installed on it?

Or would I have to update to it?

You will most likely have to update as I'm sure they had a pretty big stockpile of 4's. Of course it may come with 6.... I got a refurb a bit ago and it had 5.1.1.

They come with it PreInstalled now, at least all of the one's i've sold. You can tell on the box, the new box has a picture of iOS6 as a screenshot on the phone (You can see passbook)

I'm curious as to your reason for buying a 8GB iPhone 4 now. Why did you buy it instead of the 16GB 4S?

Hello! The iPhone was for my mother actually. She doesn't believe in paying hundreds for a phone, so I got her to recontract an iPhone 5, sell it off, and purchase a iPhone 4. Basically that made her pay much less.

With all the complaints of iOS 6 ruining the battery time on iphone 4s, should I hold off to install it if it doesnt come installed already? Mine arrives in mail tomorrow and kinda scared about upgrading to ios 6 with all those websites saying it kills the battery.

Would you guys recommend installing ios 6 on it? Or does iOS 6 really kill the battery life?

My new 4S came with 5.1.1 (thankfully). I see no reason whatsoever to put iOS6 on it.
