Will iOS 6 dump support for first generation iPad?

As Apple gets ready for its Worldwide Developer Conference in San Fransisco on Monday, it seems assured that the company will reveal the first features of iOS 6, the next version of its mobile operating system. Banners showing the new iOS 6 logo are going up inside and outside San Franciscos Moscone Center in preparation for the WWDC event.

Now theres word that a list of which devices iOS 6 will officially support has been leaked at the Weiphone.com website. This list includes Apples download links for iOS 6 which at the moment dont appear to be active. If this list is accurate, it shows that the iPad 2 and the third generation iPad will support iOS 6. However, the first generation iPad, launched in 2010, is not listed. This might mean that Apples first tablet device will only work on iOS 5 from now on.

The list also shows iOS 6 working on the iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S models, along with the Apple TV set-top box and the current fourth generation version of the iPod Touch. Again, if this list is accurate, the third generation iPod Touch wont be able to be updated beyond iOS 5.
