    Before I upgrade my 3GS I would like to know what features are not available on it. Can you use the apps like find my friends? What about the other features?

    Also I have an iPad 1 3G and wifi and can't seem to use the location reminders. Are they not available on the first iPad?

    Thanks

    As far as I can remember, only Location Reminders are omitted (not available in 1st iPad too, as you said). In fact iOS 5 even adds the ringtones which had been available to iPhone 4 only.

    You also don't get the Siri features - they're only for the new iPhone 4S

    Find my friend also doesn't work on iPad 1. Does it on 3GS?

    It works on my iPad 1 (and 3GS), I think. I've downloaded the app and opened it but still haven't used it.

    And as Dooper3 said you don't get the iPhone 4s exclusive features like Siri and speech-to-text.

    Ok thank you, if you get a chance to use it on both devices could you let me know by posting back in this thread?

    I've now tested in on both my 3GS and iPad 1 and it works fine on both. :)

    some of the camera options aren't there. But the grid, lock screen camera button, and the volume button for shutter release works great.
