Download yours by going to Settings > General > Software Update, or head to iTunes and pull it in. If you have any trouble with the connection to Apple or the speed of the download, Apple is pleading for patience. Between iPhone 5 pre-orders and iOS 6 downloads, Apple’s servers have been slammed.
Besides, the iOS 6 update is massive update. - clocking in at a hefty 2.5 GB. It may take some time to get an "over the air" upgrade.
Not all phone, tablet and iPod generations will be able to handle iOS 6. Older devices don’t have all the features they need to operate on a full-blown iOS 6 version You’ve got to have an iPhone 3GS or newer, iPod Touch 4th generation or newer or an iPad 2.
TechCrunch put together a great summary of what device gets what features.
It’s too bad that the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th gen are the only devices that are up to the challenge of a fully-loaded iOS 6. But it's also one more reason to get in line for your iPhone 5 today.
