Is Your iPhone 3GS Missing Some iOS 5 Features?

With the launch of iOS 5 beta, Apple confirmed that the latest firmware is compatible with the iPhone 3GS. However, we have received some reports that iPhone 3GS users on iOS 5 may have some iOS 5 features disabled.

So far it seems that iPhone 3GS users are affected as follows:

  • Significantly slower performance than the iPhone 4
  • No access to photo editing features via the Photos app
  • No camera access from the lock screen as with the iPhone 4

iPhone 3G users will be familiar with past firmware when iPhone 3GS users received the multitasking feature but iPhone 3G users were cut off.

If you own an iPhone 3GS that has iOS 5 loaded, what features have you not been able to use? Post your finds below!
