    No. Sorry. Apple needs to push more sales.

    The iPad Mini will be supported because it is shipping right now but no go on the 4s.

    Longer product lifespans push more sales as well. If someone still has a 4s, it's probably for a reason.

    Any chance you can stop going round iOS 9/older device compatibility threads and ranting like a lunatic?

    Yes, Apple TV 3rd uses A5 and Elgato stated that Apple TV 3rd can be used as a middle-man for Siri when you're not home.

    So, iPhone 4s will receive it.

    Why the hate? Its great for those of us on older devices. You realise that the iPad 2 is still the iPad with the largest installed base?

    Do you realise that around half of the installed iPads are A5?

    iOS 9 is going to be a performance based update, to improve performance.

    What does it matter to you? You don't even use an A5 device, according to what you told me in a mother thread.

    So?? The 2G and 3G got 2 updates.

    The iPad 1 got 2 updates and the iPad 2 has received 4 updates. Apple doesn't a pattern.

    I can pretty much say 100 percent that at least the Touch 5 and Mini 1 wil get it.

    Fingers crossed for the others. I believe that there have been too many leaks to suggest it is happening for it not to happen, however yes I don't want to get too excited.

    ios 9 WILL NOT drop compatibility with iPhone 4S or iPad 2. Bookmark this if you want. I will be right.

    It would simply mean you guessed right with a 50/50 chance essentially.

    You were saying? I hate it when people say they know, why not just assume instead?

    The iPhone 4s is listed as a download for iOS 9. But, that doesn't mean the final will get it.

    Great, this is Apple at its best!
    An iPhone from 2011 get's the current iOS version for 2015. Nexus 4 from 2012 is already unsupported.

    Yet still, all of my friends are complaining about Apple concerning planned obsolescence - couldn't be further from the truth!

    What? If it lists that it supports it, then it will be getting it.

    It's pre-release software. There is no guarantee that it will be in the public release. Yes, good chance ... but by no means 100%.

    Fairly certain that if it was listed in the WWDC slides about iOS 9 in general (not about beta specifically) and appears at Apple's own iOS 9 web site at http://www.apple.com/ios/ios9-preview/ (aimed at the public and not specifically about the beta) it would be a pretty big screw up on their part to not release the final version for the listed devices.
