Apple will release the final version of iOS 7 to the general public on Sept. 10—the same day the company is expected to announce the new iPhone 5S and 5C—according to an email sent by Nuance, the company that developed Siri. A message from the company to its developers was obtained by freelance tech writer Owen Williams and published to his personal blog before Nuance could take down the page.
The latest iOS 7 rumor fits into Apple’s recent history of releasing each new mobile OS on the same day it unveils the latest iPhone. More recently, the company has begun accepting new apps built for each upcoming iOS into the App Store ahead of the official launch, which explains how Nuance and its developers know when the new operating system will be released.
There’s still no official confirmation that Apple will announce a new iPhone, let alone iOS 7, on Sept. 10, but at this point we’re expecting Cupertino to send out announcements for the big event any day now. Stay tuned.
