    I'm not sure if this was already discussed but what day will iOS 6 be released to the masses? Will it be on the 12th?

    Expect it 9/21... and if it comes before then, be happy.

    I am willing to bet that GM will be released to developers on the 12th and to the public a few days later. Keep in mind that developers need a few days to update their apps using the latest development kit available for the release version of iOS.

    I heard iOS 6 will most likely be released on the 19th
    Two or three days before launch

    This has been accurate in years past. I would expect the same.

    I gather that iOS 6 will be fully functional on an iPhone 4S?

    It depends on whether there are any unknown features. If there are, the GM will not be made available before the announcement.

    I don't agree with the iPad 2 being limited especially when it is on par with the 4S, in my opinion.

    Remember that you don't have to be a developer to just go ahead and install the GM. The GM is the same as the official release. So if you could get your hands on it, you can just install it. Maybe avoid launch day downloading/server problems that happened with the release of iOS 5 last year.

    Except for features that may get announced for new iPhone. Everything that was announced at WWDC will be fully functional on 4S.

    I know and being that I have a Wi-Fi Only iPad 2, Siri is not an issue for me, however, to the people who own the 3G version, to not include Siri and especially FaceTime over 3G is, in my opinion, somewhat of a letdown.

    I see where you're coming from... and whether or not there's a bona fide technical reason for not having Siri on the iPad2 (note: there is not IMO), it's how the industry works - to get the features, you have to have the latest device... it's all part of the planned obsolescence / throw-away model.

    I didn't even realize until I saw that graph above that FaceTime would be allowed over data on iPad 2. Apple does this though at an attempt to get a few more to upgrade.

    Believe me, I understand, but, in my opinion, the iPad 2 deserves the latest upgrade in its entirety at least until 2013.

    I know, but the phase out of the iPad 2 is too soon, in my opinion. Then again, with the arrival of the iPad mini, Apple will focus on it and the current flagship iPad in regard to sales, as you've stated. Yes, it makes food business sense and I know my response is personal and technical.

    Not a chance. It will be a prior date to that. Also, Apple never releases a OS at 10pm.
