At today's iPhone media event (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/09/10/live-coverage-of-apples-2013-iphone-media-event/), Apple executives announced that iOS 7 will be released to the public on Wednesday September 18, two days before the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are released.

Apple SVP Craig Federighi once again highlighted iOS 7's major redesign and the numerous new features it includes. He touched on Control Center, a revamped Notification Center, AirDrop, iTunes Radio, and new multitasking capabilities.

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2013/09/ios71.jpg"iOS 7 is completely redesigned with an entirely new user interface and over 200 new features, so it's like getting a brand new device, but one that will still be instantly familiar to our users," said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering. "Next month we'll be shipping our 700 millionth iOS device, and we're excited about what our hundreds of thousands of iOS developers are doing to bring great new features to their apps."Apple also announced that iOS 7 (http://www.apple.com/ios/) will support the new 64-bit technologies introduced with the iPhone 5s, with all built-in apps re-engineered for 64-bit and iOS 7 will support both 32-bit and 64-bit apps.

The OS has been built to complement both the iPhone 5c's colors and the new internal capabilities of the iPhone 5s, including its Touch ID fingerprint sensor and camera features like automatic image stabilization, Burst Mode, and Slo-Mo 120 fps video.

iOS 7 will be available on September 18 for the iPhone 4 and later, the iPad 2 and later, the iPad mini, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.

Too bad the stated date is not a Friday.. More than likely Tim meant to say OCTOBER since there is a Friday the 18th next month..

No registered UDID needed for GM installation.

Apple has promised that "iOS 7 will quickly become the world's most popular operating system."

Soon we'll find out how quickly quickly is.

Uh, FRIDAY, Sept 18th? Sept 18th isn't a Friday. Did he mean actually Sept 18th (Wed) or Oct 18th (Fri)?

iOS is usually released a couple of days before the new iPhones go on sale.

You can preorder the 5C on the 13th. They must be shipping on the 20th then, the same day as the 5S goes on sale in stores.

So when do devs get it? I would think we need time to work on our apps and publish them before public release.

Looks like Apple is placing Genius in the bottom nav. according to that screenshot of the Music app. (to the right of Radio)

I don't know, I don't work for Apple..........just a hunch based on past history. We only have to wait until tonight to find out if I am wrong.

I am curious if performance will be enhanced or will it cause additional lag. I'm currently on a 4S.

Are A6/A6X 64-bit ready? Info are murky and marketing driven!

Why did they not include Slo-Mo Video for iPhone 5? Don't think its a hardware issue for blocking this feature. Slo-Mo at 60fps worked fine with apps such as SloPro on pre-iOS 6 with iPhone4S. Why make this 5S only?

I take it, this will need to be a clean install? Not a OTA from existing beta versions?

Unless your IPod Touch is a 5th Generation Device, it's NOT update able anyways.

yeah, sure, 100% more bits, or so.
but why? will there be any device in the near future w/ 4Gig or more RAM?

Um, thanks for letting us all know.

It's not just bigger memory addressing, you also get a wider datapath. Certain kinds of 64-bit applications, such as video encoding/decoding, will actually run faster just being 64-bit.

The timing of this is working out well for me. The Galaxy Note 3 arrives on Verizon on Oct 10 and I'll have an upgrade available right around then.... so I'll have a few weeks to test drive iOS 7. That will determine whether I decide to stick it out until a hopefully larger iPhone 6 comes out, or go ahead and switch now.

If you update, be aware that you'll loose the ability to connect with iTunes until it's updated to 11.1.

Gonna grab iPhone 5 while it's available and stay on iOS 6.

How is this comment useful? Can't you work out your personal logistics on your own?

Performance is really the key though.

If it turns out by upgrading to iOS7 my iphone5 is slow as molasses, I'll hold out. But Apple ain't getting anymore money from me. I'll just wait until this one dies then shop for a new (most likely Android) phone.

I wonder if x64 really makes that much of a difference. I'll be waiting for some benchmark numbers.

No I meant the performance of the same app written in x86 vs x64. A7 obviously would be faster than A6 by itself.

It is, and I'm not updating because I suspect iOS7 will run like a dog with 512mb of RAM.

I was running several of the beta versions of iOS7 on my iPhone 5, and the battery life is absolutely terrible. On my iphone 5 running iOS6 I can always go 2 and sometimes even 3 days on one charge. When I loaded iOS7 on there, I NEVER got more than 24 hours and usually I had to charge it every night and take it off charge every morning. By 10 or 11pm I'd be down to less than 30% left.

GTA V comes out on the 17th so I guess the servers won't be overloaded on the 18th with people downloading iOS7.

The sooner they release iOS 7, the better... Not because I plan to download it when it is released, but because the sooner they release it, the sooner they will come out with the first bug fix that will squash many of the most problematic bugs, which is what I plan to download. :)

That's the truth there. Usually takes 1-2 releases to get it stable.
