It is obvious there will be no iOS 7 download today in terms of public release, but Apple will make the GM version ready for download during or after today’s Apple event. We never thought for one moment that the iOS 7 public release would happen today, and so it is clear that this will be available from next week.
We have already seen various comments from our readers asking things like “when does iOS 7 come out”, and so that is why we advised them not to expect anything today, unless you are a developer that is. This will be good for our in-house developer because he will be able to see what other improvements Apple has made once they get their hands on iOS 7 Gold Master.
Another of our readers had asked “what devices will be supported by iOS 7”, which led us to writing an article looking into this very question. As always there will be some features specific to the newest iPhone that will be unveiled today, as well as the iPhone 5.
Going back to when will the public release of the iOS 7 download go live, we very much believe iOS 7 download will launch next week on Wednesday, which is September 18, 2013. There have been suggestions of a day before or after, but the 18th is the favorite because we expect the iPhone 5S to be released on September 20, which is the Friday, the same pattern as with iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 last year.
We had hoped to be following live coverage of the Apple event on Apple TV, but it seems as though this live stream is MIA, and so you will now have to follow some of the blogs attending the event to get the news as it happens in a few minutes time.
Update: Apple has just conformed that iOS 7 will launch on September 18, which is a Wednesday. We already called this a few days ago and again today, so this date comes as no surprise to us.
