I have a first generation iPad. I also own a fourth generation iPod touch. As we all know, the latter will be able to run iOS 6 where the former won't (for some odd technological reason [by the way, if anyone has insight as to why this is, I'd really love to know]). Having owned a first generation iPod touch until buying the third generation model upon its release and having owned that third generation model until two months ago when I replaced it with a fourth generation model, I've never had an iOS device that wasn't able to run the current release of iOS. That said, while I'd like to get a new iPad, my budget won't allow for it until around the time that the current (third generation) iPads are replaced by the next rev. My question: When the apps that are already on my iPad start getting updates that require iOS 6, will the app store on my first generation iPad not see them? Will my apps disappear? In terms of my apps on that device, what'll happen?
