    How stripped down will IOS 8 be for 4s users? What will be missing short of the components only available to newer phones?

    I've searched, but I cannot find an iOS 8 device compatibility list that's detailed like the one for iOS 7. Sorry.

    The 4S will get everything that the 6 and 6+ get that does not require the 6 or 6+ hardware... I imagine there will be a list like D mentions above soon.

    Not only hardware requirements, but it should be addressed as location on where certain services will work and will not...

    Only info I can get is from Apple themselves.



    1. Siri is available on iPhone 4s or later, iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation) and requires Internet access. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Cellular data charges may apply.
    2. Turn-by-turn navigation is available on iPhone 4s or later, iPad 2 or later, and iPad mini with cellular data capability. Cellular data charges may apply.
    3. FaceTime calling requires a FaceTime-enabled device for the caller and recipient and a Wi-Fi connection. FaceTime over a cellular network requires iPhone 4s or later, iPad with Retina display, or iPad mini with cellular data capability. Availability over a cellular network depends on carrier policies; data charges may apply.
    4. Safari full-screen view and tab view are available on iPhone 4s or later and iPod touch (5th generation).
    5. AirDrop is available on iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation) and requires an iCloud account.

    Well, I've read that the betas have been pretty Laggy on the 4s. Is that typical? For the betas to be lady and the GM be smoother?

    Betas are just that... I would not hold anything over a Beta OS any day.
