This year, iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 should be released simultaneously
Usually, different Apple gadgets received major operating system updates at the same time. Last year, the release schedules of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 were “differed” by more than a month. The reason for this delay was the Stage Manager feature in iPadOS, which the company needed additional time to implement.
On September 12, the presentation of Apple Wonderlust is planned, which will be followed by the release of operating systems along with the appearance of new devices. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, there should be no “out-of-sync” between the release of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 this time.
Last week, developers and public testers received the eighth beta version of the systems. Mr. Gurman’s sources say that these are the versions that are to become the release versions, adding: “barring any unforeseen circumstances.”
The exact release date of the systems is not specified. Traditionally, updates are released along with the launch of new iPhones, which happens “two to three weeks” after the presentation. So, if the company does not have any sudden “accidents” in production, we won’t have to wait long for new OSes and devices.
