Apple CEO Jobs: no more upgrades for original iPhone

Updated

In a reply to a customer email, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has said that the original iPhone won’t be supported by future software updates. Twitter user Ven000m asked Jobs in an email if Apple would be “supporting/updating” the original iPhone in the future, to which the regularly terse Jobs replied, “sorry, no.” Apple made no mention of the original iPhone or the first-generation iPod touch during its iPhone OS 4 special event last week, where it announced that the new multitasking features would be limited to the iPhone 3GS and third-generation iPod touch, with the iPhone 3G receiving a stripped down upgrade; later comments from Jobs during a Q & A session suggested the company was ceasing support for its oldest iPhone OS devices.
