Can I update to iOS 4.3 firmware on the iPhone 3G?

Can I update to iOS 4.3 firmware on the iPhone 3G?

UPDATE: You can now download older versions of apps from the App Store. Try it out, and let us know if it worked for you.

No. Apple is officially leaving the iPhone 3G behind to run iOS 4.2.1 firmware forever. No more updates for the iPhone 3G will be forthcoming.

If you haven't updated to iOS 4.2.1 on your iPhone 3G you can find iPhone 3G firmware files here. The iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 (AT&T only) will support iOS 4.3.


How can I get iOS 4.3 on my iPhone 3G

Tried this. Got message to check for next update on 6 Jan 2013

where talking about iphone 3G not 3GS dumbass..

If is was that simple do you think we would ALL be on this site? We aren't idiots! There is no update for the iphone 3 or 3gs. I've spent hours trying to find a way with no such luck. I even went online and found the download, but it will no longer download. It is total bs.

haha you dont know even what are they talking about, and are you saying us "stupid idiots ???!!" haha you are so fucking retard, don't write if you dont know !!!!

Obviously you didn't realise that you can't upgrade the 3G to 4.3. In fact it was mentioned at the beginning of the thread that it stops at 4.2.1. Why are you even reading this thread given your inability to even follow/understand what it is about? Yet you have the arrogance to call others idiots and pea brains. Maybe it was a miss-understanding on your part, but if you'd have anything constructive to add maybe you should find somewhere else to impart your not so wise words.

you're an idiot. you can't upgrade to 4.3 on the 3g. that what everybody is arguing about. thats what this entire page was about. how did you even get here?

IPhone 3G support iOS 4.3


Trying to do what you said. Sadly... it says 4.2.1 IS the latest version. No 4.3...

Same ... they have in effect made I phone 3 obsolete. My friends cheap Android phone still runs everything and is now better than my i phone . I was going to upgrade to Iphone 4 but will now get a Samsung Galaxy. Who knows when they will make I phone 4 redundant. Seriously Pissed.

So what about the environment, all of these i3 will be tossed out. Waste I say! I just wanted to update ios on my wifes old phone and give it to my daughter. She has been waiting 1 week - i now have to tell her that she cannot get new games on the i phone. Things stick in kids minds, lets see if she buys an Iphone or a mac when she gets older. I allways knew MAC sucked!

Because they are GREEDY bastards at Apple. They want you to keep buying new stuff.
A macbook after 6 yrs? Throw it in the rubbish.
