Apple unveiled iOS 10, the next major update for its mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at the WWDC 2016 Keynote in June.
iOS 10 includes features such the revamped Messages app with stickers and full-screen effects, Siri support for third-party apps, all-new Photos app, redesigned Music and News app and lots more.
Apple has already released the fifth beta version of iOS 10 to developers and the fourth beta to public beta tests. However, one of the most frequently asked questions is when Apple will release iOS 10 to the public.
John Gruber of Daring Fireball, predicts that Apple will unveil the next generation iPhone, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and perhaps even an iPhone 7 Pro at a media event on September 7, which fits with the leak that the new iPhones will be available for pre-orders on September 9, followed by the launch on September 16th.
Based on the historic information, Apple usually releases a major iOS update on a Wednesday, and a week after the iPhone launch event.
- iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch event on September 9, iOS 9 release date – Wednesday, September 16th
- iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch event on September 9, iOS 8 release date – Wednesday, September 17th
- iPhone 5s launch event on September 10, iOS 7 release date – Wednesday, September 18th
- iPhone 5 launch event on September 12, iOS 6 release date – Wednesday, September 19th
If Apple follows the same release schedule as the last four years, then the iOS 10 release date could be on Wednesday, September 14, two days before the launch of the new iPhones. Please note that this is a speculation based on historic information.
