June 11, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Machine platforms are sometimes like animal mothers, they stop supporting their offspring after some time. iOS is no different.

The usual way the trade is run on iOS is that it drops a device which is a couple of generations old from support program, leaving it to live its own without frequent updates and fixes except major security fixes.

Now the news in the wind says that the original iPad and third generation iPod Touch has to go out from mothers care as iOS 6 is about to get a beta launch.

According to sources who has a clear idea about Apple’s plan on the WorldWide Developers Conference that will be keeping our spirits high in the coming days at San Francisco, the Cupertino giant will launch the beta version of the latest edition of their platform there.

When the beta comes out, both the devices will not be included in the list of supported devices, say the sources.

The information which reportedly originates from leaked list of developer releases for both iOS and Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion confirms this rumor in a way.

According to the list, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 3GS and fourth-generation iPod make it into the list of supported devices. Obviously, both versions of Apple TV also are supported.

The new version of the Smartphone platform from Apple is expected to have an overhauled mapping application with 3D features.

It is also heard that Siri will hit all devices with this iOS update. Similarly, more Facebook integration is also on the list of expected features. Stay tuned, WWDC will kick off on June 11.
