    I'm currently running on the 5th version of iOS 5 for apple iOS developers and today I was watching tv and received this message from Apple. Here is 2 pics of it. Tell me what you think.

    Is this really legit, or was this sent via Find My iPhone? Can someone confirm?

    nvm, it's fake. I don't use Find My iPhone, so i didn't have an idea.

    Find my iPhone. It's obvious Apple wouldn't send this out, and the bold part says "Important Message" which is what FMI notifications say :p

    You may have missed some of the above posts. It appears likely that the OP faked the messages using his Me.com account.

    I am not a developer, but it seems weird that Apple would send a notification like this through the OS instead of say a Mass email? Also, wouldn't the new notifications have this on the lock screen as a single line entry and on the home screen on the bottom panel?

    I'm requesting for some more useless threads to be closed in the iPhone forum. It's really annoying to see fake threads being bumped up regularly.

    obviously sent from find my iphone. Apple also would not say other versions are not supported, does not sound like them.

    Hm, interesting how they put iPhone 5 in there.

    EDIT: OP, how are you on iOS 5 if the iPod icon is still there?? In iOS 5, the iPod icon was split into Music and Videos. This is a fake.

    "not currently supported"? That's not even proper English so I don't think Apple would say that. It'd be "currently not supported".

    It is proper English either way, but this is still obviously a fake.

    They wouldn't, which is why it's fake.

    And why would it say not currently supported... currently... Like the iPhone 2G/3G will be receiving iOS 5.0 in the future?!? It should read not supported.
