    Default No SIRI with iOS 6 update?

    I was happy to see the maps update with turn by turn and the passbook is okay but no SIRI? I thought that was coming with iOS6....

    Wow that's terrible. I could understand if the 4S had just come out because Apple would want people to buy a new product, but now the 4S and 5 have it. I don't think they can count on that scenario anymore so why not just push it out to the 4 users.....?

    Because it won't perform at a level Apple deems satisfactory.

    It's not like this should have been a surprise to anyone - the info has been available at Apple - iOS 6 - iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch get 200+ new features. since shortly after the iOS6 introductory event a long time ago.

    I don't think turn by turn is available on the 4 also.

    It's not... Turn-by-turn navigation is available only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPad 2 or later with cellular data capability. Flyover is available only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 or later, and iPod touch (5th generation). Cellular data charges may apply.

    The iPhone 4 does get Turn-By-Turn, but not spoken Turn-By-Turn.

    This is correct. I used that feature last night. Once you make the turn the map will automatically update to the next turn, it just doesn't say anything.

    Personally for me Siri gets old after a day or so, and she does not work very well, so you are not missing much.

    I believe apple didn't give that to you because than they wouldn't cope up with so many ios devices trying to get info from they're servers !

    Siri has worked fine for me so far. Occasionally, Siri will misinterpret things, but most of the time she works well.

    The iPhone 4 is now 2 models behind. It is a free phone on most carriers and with the introduction of the new model next year will disappear from their lineup. There are lots of things Apple never does that can be done the original iPhone and iPhone 3G(I think?) never got background wallpapers. Yes something so simple, it doesn't move, it doesn't do any tricks but for some reason Apple though the phone couldn't handle it. I will honestly say that having Siri on the i4 through Jailbreak was cool but it was very frustrating and they don't want to give regular users that experience. It's the classic case of the grass is always greener on the other side. If you got it and it took ages to respond or do things you wanted it to do you would be wondering why you ever wanted it in the first place.

    Well lets not forget the hardware in the devices. The 4S and 5 have better processors than the 4. With the 4 it could be too much of a battery drain and/or make the phone too sluggish.

    nope none of that real os6 goodness at all. You will never get Siri, Turn by Turn, and passbook is gimmicky..... oh also you wont get flyover either but that does not matter because it is useless for actual everyday life

    Actually, to be accurate, the iPhone 4 does get Turn-by-turn; however, it does not get spoken Turn-by-turn.

    actually, what is terrible is the FACT that you would be the first to complain how Siri does not perform well on your iPhone 4

    Apple did it for a reason. quality and performance of their devices are a main priority

    Same here. I use Siri almost everyday now, and I think it works much better running iOS 6 now.

    Time to upgrade that phone if you want more feature. iPhone 4 is 28 month old technology.

    Wish I could link this to all the threads where people are choosing iPad 2 over the 3 to save $100.($50 if you get a refurb at apple outlet) Next big iOS update I am sure the 2 won't be supported.

    This is not unique to Apple iOS. Other firmware manufacturers (Microsoft, Blackberry, etc.) don't update every device with a new OS. Some older devices won't run the newest upgrade so the manufacturer can't support it.
