iOS 7 public release countdown starts

Under: Phone Software, Software
Date: September 12th, 2013

One of the best parts of the recent Apple event was hearing the public release date of iOS 7, the next major mobile operating system upgrade. It will be available from September 18, which is now less than a week away. The iOS 7 public release countdown has now started.

We’ve been keeping readers informed about iOS 7, which is a radical change from previous Apple mobile operating systems. It may take a while for some people to get used to it, although others will take to it straight away.

You may want to take a look at the countdown tool below so that you can count down the hours and minutes before the general release of iOS 7. Nobody knows exactly what time Apple will let iOS 7 go live, but we do know it will happen on September 18.

Last year, iOS 6 released shortly after 9am PDT, (12 noon EDT, or 5pm for UK), so our prediction is that it will release at about the same time this year. Therefore we’ve set the countdown for 9am PDT, as this is the closest we can come to a precise time for the iOS 7 release to the public.

The Gold Master iOS 7 is now in the hands of developers, which is the final build before it reaches the public. You may want to see details of the full changelog, and we’ve also shown a GM iOS 7 review video to give an idea of what you can expect. Hopefully the public release of iOS 7 will be very close to the time that we’ve forecast above.

In the meantime we’d be really interested to hear if you’re one of the many people avidly waiting to download iOS 7 on your existing Apple device? What are your expectations for iOS 7, and are you ready for the change? Let us know with your comments.

  • Gautham

    Can’t wait!

  • Owen

    me neither. ive been waiting more than 4 months. I am wondering weather this time is right, maybe its just some guy who thinks that is is exactly right !

  • Amna

    Oh yeah this wait is getting longer than ever now.. :( Hope it’s worth as much as we hold it to be! ;)

  • GAutham

    i installed the ios 7 gm and am waiting for the official version for OTA!

    • andy

      gm any good, any difference with beta 6 and 5, is it faster and better ??

      • GAutham

        i never tried the beta 5 or 6. the last was beta 2. beta 2 really sucked on iphone 4 and had many problems like lagging and over heating( when i mean overheating, I MEAN I), it burnt my hand. so i went back to ios 6.1.3. then i thought gm would be better but in vain. the interface is gud, wallpapers r gud but on an iphone 4, it LAGS man! i hope apple really looks into this matter on the final release 17 later!

        • gautham

  • EasyInn

    Is this official or speculation? This is like 3am EDT

  • mr stark

    it will be 7am when it is released in the uk time zone so different times for other countries but at the same time if that makes sense

  • nube

    how do u c the count down

    • mr stark

      scroll up to the countdown

  • melc

    this countdown tool now shows 5 hours left to ios 7 launch BUT 5 hours later it’ll be 00:00 in california. so the question is, will apple release it at 00:00 ? or 09:00 like ios 6 ?

    • GAutham

      ya the countdown is totally wrong

  • melc

    “Last year, iOS 6 released shortly after 9am PDT, (12 noon EDT, or 5pm for UK), so our prediction is that it will release at about the same time this year. Therefore we’ve set the countdown for 9am PDT, as this is the closest we can come to a precise time for the iOS 7 release to the public.”

    No, the countdown tool is set to 00:00.

  • paladinkiller

    Omg!!! 4 hours and counting, cant wait

  • dannyboy#01

    there is no definite telling when it will be released because apple hasn’t said the time. the countdown is just going based off of the exact time the 18 of sept. starts. nobody actually knows the time it is being released
