2012 Toyota Prius C: Not Future-Proof
January 10, 2013
Can't say I'm surprised that I can't use the Prius C's Entune apps suite with my iPhone 3G. Everything's moved to iOS 4.3 and beyond to iOS6. But it's a small bummer that soft and firmware has moved fast enough to render a four-year-old phone obsolete, in this application anyway. Heck, Apple doesn't even support this phone anymore beyond the 4.2 version of the software, and I've got no interest in jail-breaking it (some say it works, some don't).
It's a small matter of pride that I've kept this phone alive and operable this long, but a new phone is in the near future. I'll retire this one to iPod service for the car and Pandora streaming for home.
