Apple iOS 7 available for iPhones and iPads September 18 2013

Apple will be releasing iOS 7,  Apple’s update to the operating system for its iPhone and iPad devices on September 18 2013.

The update will likely be available from Apple around 1pm local time, if indicators regarding iOS 7 availability from other countries are correct. However, given the anticipated demand as everyone tries to update around this time, it might be prudent to wait a while (But where’s the fun in that? ;-).

iOS 7 will be available for the following iOS devices

  • iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, 
  • pre-installed on iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

  • iPad 2, iPad with Retina display and iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5th generation (16GB/32GB/64GB) models

Apple iOS 7 is a significant upgrade for iOS, visually and functionality. The Apple’s iOS site has a detailed breakdown of the iOS 7 design and  iOS 7 features.  Check out’s guide on how to update to iOS 7 and MacWorld’s coverage of iOS 7.
