Which iOS 6 features will your old iPhone get?

Earlier this week Apple announced its annual update to iOS, which brings in a slew of new features including Apple’s own maps in lieu of Google Maps, deep Facebook integration and much more. While the new OS will be available on all devices that Apple is still retailing (including the three-year-old iPhone 3GS!) not all features will be supported by older devices like the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad 2. If you have one of these devices, check out which features will be available on your device once iOS 6 is available later this year. Also Read - Key iOS 6 features won't work in India
