    I was wondering if someone could confirm that you can Facetime from an iOS 7 device to an iOS 6.1 device. My dad has iOS 7 on his iPhone and iPad but I have a iPod Touch 4g which cannot be upgraded to iOS 7. Thank you.

    You can FaceTime from an iOS device to OS X, so I don't see why the iOS operating system version would matter. The only aspect where iOS 7 is needed on both devices is if you want to do a FaceTime Audio call (which is essentially just VoIP, or FaceTime without the video).

    You can FaceTime to any device that supports FaceTime on any version that supports FaceTime (iOS version 4.0 or newer) as well as Mac OS X (Snow Leopard 10.6 or newer)

    You should still be able to do something like FaceTime Audio by doing the regular FaceTime Video and then pressing the home button to send it to background while still talking essentially.
