iOS 8 & iPhone 6? coming this fall

At WWDC (Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference) yesterday, Apple announced iOS 8, the next iteration of its mobile operating system for iPhones and iPad.  iOS 8’s public release this fall will likely be accompanied by the release of the 4.7″ model of the iPhone 6.  iOS 8 will be able to be installed on the iPhone 4s and newer devices — the iPhone 4 will not be allowed to install iOS 8, thus indicating that Apple is dropping support for devices older than the 4s.
