They're never at midnight. It'll be 10AM PST, 1PM EST as usual.
I believe that iOS 8.0.1 was released around 3PM EST 12PM PST IIRC
Why guess? Typically it's around 10 AM US Pacific, and if it's not (which is still a possibility) then no guessing can really point to a more likely time.
8.0.1 was released at 9:58AM PST, 12:58PM EST.
The one that was different was 8.0.2 which was released at 2 something PM PST, likely because they needed to rush it out due to the 8.0.1 debacle.
Point is, they're usually released at 10AM PST. If not, then usually within a few minutes. They're rarely released at drastically different times.
Never mind, I'm wrong
Could potentially be released earlier for Apple Pay use on east coast when stores open there at 10 Am. But maybe not.
I agree. I too believe that it will be earlier than usual since Apple Pay was announced to begin tomorrow as well.
I agree as well. I work for a company that is going to be accepting Apple pay at all of its locations. There was an internal email stating that all stores would be able to accept Apple pay at the time that our stores open at 8 AM. Granted, it could still be released later in the day. I'm really looking forward to it. I plan on using it at my work right away.
6pm UK time.
I can see the release being earlier than normal due to the ApplePay release. It would make sense that people would be able to use it when stores open on the east coast.
Didn't they say in the keynote the user would have to go to his or her bank institution to verify something?
I don't see why but I know it was said. I'm hoping its as easy as taking a photo of the card,but then again it could be anyone's card?
There is a verification step, but you won't have to actually go to your bank.
Can't wait till it's all set up!
Actually, the process of adding a card to a phone is more complex than just having someone else's card in your hand and putting it into your own phone. The process includes:
"Additionally, as part of the Link and Provision process, Apple shares information from the device with the issuing bank or network, like the last four digits of the phone number, the device name, and the latitude and longitude of the device at the time of provisioning, rounded to
whole numbers. Using this information, the issuing bank will determine whether to approve adding the card to Apple Pay."
A bank can decide whether a credit or debit card requires additional verification. Depending on what is offered by the card issuer, the user may be able to choose between different options for additional verification, such as a text message, email, customer service call, or a method in an approved third-party app to complete the verification. For text messages or email, the user selects from contact information the bank has on file. A code will be sent, which the user will need to enter into Passbook. For customer service or verification using an app, the bank performs their own communication process."
See iOS Security Guide October 2014:
This makes sense, they are launching a big feature, I would be nice for the east coast to have it available at 10am and not at 1pm
So, based on this information my guess is 8AM EST
Just unusual for people who don't live over there. I can't imagine having something be released at 6PM from Apple.
Monday between 12:00am and 11:59pm.
Australia is normally 3am.
hopefully 12am EST. so is 8.1 going to give us SMS continuity?
8.1 sure will. I've tested it myself, before I went back to iOS 8.0.2.
It's called text message forwarding, and you will need to have a email address for it, which I hate - so hopefully they fix it so its only a Mobile number.
I keep getting "Unable to check for update" an error has occurred try again or cancel and its 12:20am EST.
