    At today's 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.

    Apple also announced that iOS 7 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.

    Anyone knows if the GM seeds usually could be installed without UID check?

    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..

    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)?

    *EDIT*
    Sorry, noticed someone else posted this before I did.

    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.

    I think it will come this afternoon...........the fact they didn't mention it doesn't mean they won't reléase it early for the DEVs

    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.
