We are just hours away from Apple’s big update to iOS 6 for supported Apple devices. Although Apple has once again failed to provide a specific release time, there is good news in store if Apple decides to stick to previous iOS 6 download time trends.
As we’ve told you several times, iOS 6 is going live a full two days before the iPhone 5 launches – giving users the perfect preview on their existing device, allowing them to make the decision on whether to buy the iPhone 5 if it’s deemed worthwhile.
In the meantime, we’re willing to bet that many of you are frantically pressing that update button on iTunes to see if the update is available or not. Don’t forget though, you can also use your iPhone 4 or 4S to download the update directly on your device over the air – just head to software update in your settings to manually check it yourself.
For those of you asking – we doubt that iOS 6 is going to go live the second the clock strikes 12am Pacific Time. History has shown that the updates usually occur around the 10am mark Pacific Time, which is 1pm Eastern Time, 6pm UK time and 1am for those of you in Hong Kong.
Of course this isn’t a confirmation as nobody knows the exact time except Apple, but the company has shown on more than one occasion that they’re a company who like following ‘patterns’. If you want our advice, get some sleep and wake up nice and early to a brand new iOS 6 update full of new features and enhanced Siri support.
We’re amazed to see that the device still isn’t available for order online at the Hong Kong Apple Store, but we guess that argument can be saved for later since most of you don’t have this problem. If you are excited about the iOS 6 release time, let us know what feature or features you are most looking forward to using.
