Now that iOS 17 is finally announced, all the iOS users out there are eagerly waiting for the official version to be released. There are already 2 beta versions of iOS 17 that have been released, but the news of the official version of iOS 17 is still unknown. However, there are rumours and predictions going around out there of the possible release date of iOS 17. In this article, we are going to talk about the availability of the new iOS 17 software update. Let’s get started!
IOS 17 is something to look forward to. Although there might not be some major changes like it we had in iOS 16, it still does stand out with its new features. iOS 17 the upcoming update has a new range of exciting features and improvements. We already talked about its features in a previous article, now it’s time for us to address the main question: when will iOS 17 be available?
When will iOS 17 be available?
iOS 17 was officially announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in 2023. Following the announcement, Apple initiated the beta testing phase for iOS 17. The first developer beta was released on June 5, 2023, allowing developers to explore the new features, identify bugs, and provide valuable feedback. The public beta version provides an opportunity for enthusiasts and non-developers to try out the new features ahead of the official release. It is expected that the public beta for iOS 17 will be available in July 2023, expanding the user base involved in testing and feedback.
While Apple has not officially announced the exact release date for iOS 17, we can make speculations based on previous release patterns. If we consider the release dates of iOS 16 on September 12, 2022, and iOS 15 on September 20, 2021, it is reasonable to anticipate that iOS 17 will follow a similar timeline. Therefore, it is expected that iOS 17 will be released to the general public in mid-September 2023. Additionally, the release date of iOS 17 is expected to align closely with the launch of the new iPhone 15 lineup. Apple often synchronizes the release of their latest iOS update with the introduction of new hardware, ensuring a seamless user experience across devices.
Which devices are compatible with iOS 17 software update?
When it comes to iOS updates, not all devices can be compatible with the latest software. For iOS 17, it is expected to be available for iPhone XS and newer models. However, there is a compatibility requirement to consider. To run iOS 17, your device must have the A12 Bionic chip or a newer chip. This ensures that the devices have the necessary hardware capabilities to support the advancements and optimizations offered by iOS 17.
To cut it short, no official date has been announced by Apple for the release of iOS 17. However, we can say that it might be around mid-June 2023. We will keep you posted once Apple releases an official statement about it.
