    Has anyone been able to test the performance of iOS 6 on the iPhone 4? As in are there any slowdowns compared to iOS 5? Cheers!

    I have iPhone 4. Yeah its a bit slower, one e-mail i tried opening loaded forever. It was plain HTML. Also some apps would take ages to load. It's almost fine m8, i am sure they will work out the bugs bit later but right now its a bit with a sluggish performance but bearable though.

    but its normal for the first beta to be a bit slow,
    we should only really get worried once new betas come out and theres no improvements

    if by GM time, its still slow i will be skipping it.

    The loading or data accessing is a bit slow, but when i scroll though the UI, like in the home screen, it's pretty much smoother than iOS 5.

    FaceTime over 3g is meant to work on the 4 upwards
    remember it will come down to the phone carriers

    I find iOS 6 faster than my jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 (and 5.1, and 5.0). Scrolling and swipes are smoother all over (except Facebook, which is slow as always),

    Yesterday the iOS 6 site said iPhone 4 and above. Today it reads 4S and iPad 2 and above. No FaceTime over 3G on the iPhone 4, so 3G unrestrictor will be used again.

    Apple's subtle (or not so subtle way) of enticing you to upgrade to a 4S or 5. :p

    As is mine. I upgrade every two years when my contract runs up which just so happens to be on Apple's cycle of releasing a significantly new iPhone. ;)

    I had the 3G then got the 4 and now I'm patiently waiting for the 5.

    Looks like (now) it actually says iPhone 4S or iPad (3rd generation) with cellular data capability--so no go for iPhone 4 (in addition to 3GS) and iPad 2. Things are getting more and more restrictive almost by the minute it seems. :confused:

    ... and force all your friends to upgrade as well? Facetime makes even less sense when only 50% of your friends own an iPhone and only 50% of those have the iPhone 4S/5. Why wouldn't Apple allow this on all iOS 6 devices? This and a stable voice-only option could finally make normal costly phone calls expendable.
