FaceTime over 3G coming to iOS 6

You could soon be ditching Wi-Fi for face to face iCalls, at the expense of your data allowance

The latest version of iOS 5.1.1 contains a warning which suggests that 3G FaceTime support will be included in iOS 6, Apple Insider reports.

The warning in question states that disabling 3G may end FaceTime, implying that Appleites will soon be able to free themselves from the shackles of Wi-Fi FaceTime calls (sans jailbreak) once and for all.

3G FaceTime is the latest feature rumoured to be in iOS 6, in addition to Notes and Reminders backup support and the ditching of Google maps, and we expect all to be officially unveiled on June 11th at Apple’s WWDC, so stay tuned.

Check out our Apple iPhone 5 rumour mill for the latest on the next-gen iPhone, which could also be revealed at WWDC.
