This is my first iPhone ever to get and I'm not happy with the fact that shortly after I bought it the iPhone 6 was announced to be released in 5 months.... I spent an arm and a leg as I got it without any carrier contracts (unlocked phone) and now my iPhone will seem like an old phone soon :(

Anyway, will the iPhone 5 get iOS 6 upgrade or not?

What will iOS 6 add to my iPhone? Anything special os is it just a number upgrade with nothing really substantial to take home?

The iPhone 5 ships with iOS 6 already installed. Seeing as how the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and even the iPhone 3GS can run iOS 6, it's pretty safe to say the iPhone 5 will run iOS 7 and 8 and beyond.

As far as the next iPhone being released in five months, there has been no official announcement from Apple. Anything you've heard or read is simply a rumor at this point.

oh ok, and sorry my bad I meant to say iOS 7 in my OP

thanks man now I feel better :)
Yes, I can say with almost 100% certainty that it will. Apple typically supports iPhone hardware with iOS updates for at least three years.

Next time a new phone comes out just sell your iPhone and it will pay for itself with a carrier upgrade discount. Yes you will be locked in but it's safe to say your next iPhone will be free. I have never paid out of pocket for a new iPhone, only time was for iPhone 1.

Sold my iPhone 4 and bought the 5 and made $30
