Apple's New iOS 6 3D Maps Works only on A5 powered devices

12 June, 2012 Apple

3d Maps

One thing that Apple didn't really go through with much detail as part of yesterday's iOS 6 unveiling was in which features would be available on what hardware. We already know that Siri will be available on the new iPad, but not the iPad 2, and now we're finding out about some hardware that will be left out of the new 3D flyover feature in Apple's new Maps app.

Also, The 3D flyover feature will require the power of the A5 processor in order to run properly. This means that the Maps flyover will be available on the iPad 2, new iPad, iPhone 4S, and future mobile iProducts, but it will not be available to those with original generation iPads, iPhone 3Gs or iPhone 4, although those devices will still be able to run iOS 6.
