Estimated iOS 7 release date.

Ok so now it's all but confirmed that iOS 7 will be announced next week. In the past, generally how much time has there been between new iOS announcement and it's public release?

last few years, the iOS release coincides with the next iPhone release.....

Meaning if it follows the 4S and 5, iOS 7 will launch with the iPhone 5S in late September/early October.

Fall is bit late, but it is reasonable, since it is going to be something Apple never done with iOS, so there are going to be hundreds of bugs and it will take time to get everything right and ready for the masses.

But I guess I'll have to use beta versions for the first time.

"Late" is a relative term... Late compared to what? iOS had the last 2 major releases in early fall. Also... you will "have to" use beta versions? Why? Is your iPhone going to cease functioning when iOS 7 is announced?

As an user, I would want Apple to go through multiple beta testings before releasing it to us. iOS 7, based on rumors, will have many changes, and changes bring new bugs.

My guess: It'll be September about a week or 2 before the new iPhone is released.

That would be an extremely quick beta process for developers to get their apps working. If they did that, iOS 7 would launch with very little app support.

Going with the previous updates, it will be previewed at WWDC, betas will be released over the summer for testing & for developers to update their apps, and the public release will follow the new hardware in the fall.

And you need to be a developer to use the betas, unless you want to circumvent that restriction (I did it with iOS 6, was a pain to update from beta to the full release)

I'd say 3 months tops. That's a beta release every 2 weeks. People have to be fast in these times. It's not like they're going to make iOS 7 completely backwards INcompatible! I mean, iOS 3.0-built apps still run on iOS 6, y'know?

I say we look back at history:

Yes, but as someone mentioned eariler there may and will be lots of bugs considering they changed many things. The most important factor here I think is the release of iPhone 5s. Why would they give us iOS 7 without showing off great working-only-on-iPhone5s features. Your chart shows 90 days for 6.0 and I am sure it will be similar here. Some sites even mentioned about iPhone 5s delays so I would not expect August release :<

My best guess is a week before the iPhone 5S launch. Been pretty much like that for a while now.

They did? What did they change? You can't have seen it already and not tell us everything.

Just use your common sense and read articles where Cook said that they made some changes.
