I wish Apple would leave it up to the iPad 1 owner to decide whether they wish to upgrade, despite such multimedia apps not working properly, etc. Like we mentioned earlier, for some of us the main attraction of iOS 6 is the addition of French, German and Spanish dictionaries -- a long-time weakness of iOS that only offered the English dictionary up until iOS 5. I don't need to stress how useful auch dictionaries can be especially when you use your iPad as a reading tool, which iPad 1 can do perfectly fine. It really seems too bad that because of Apple's autocratic decision, iPad 1 owners will be deprived of those 3 new iOS dictionaries.

I'm 99% certain they will not, if they are introduced in March as usual for new iPads. New versions of iOS typically arrive in the fall. Maybe Apple will skip the March release date and will from now on start releasing new iPads in the fall of each year only, along with new iOS versions.
