iOS 8 public release date, as expected

Apple’s live event is now finished and we now know when the exciting iOS 8 public release date will be. In actual fact, it turns out that we were spot on as we predicted the September 17 date back in August.

Apple has now confirmed this as fact hours ago at the event and current iPhone and iPad users will be able to get their hands on the latest version of Apple’s mobile software.

The important information that you need to know is that iOS 8 will be compatible with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Supported iPad models include the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air and the iPad Mini.

If you still have the iPod Touch 5th generation model, you’ll be pleased to hear that you’ll be getting an update to iOS 8 as well. The real losers are iPhone 4 owners who will now need to contemplate an upgrade to the iPhone 6 as you won’t be getting the update on September 17.

There’s no set iOS 8 release time, but we can imagine that most of you will be hammering that refresh button on iTunes and device settings, the minute the clock strikes midnight on September 17.

Are you an iPhone 4 owner and now faced with the decision of upgrading? Let us know if you are happy with how the iOS 8 update is looking so far and how you think it compares to Android.

Who has the better mobile OS? Don’t forget that Google are preparing to unleash Android L at any moment as well.
