    I get that iOS8 isn't out yet, but when it is officially released on Sept. 17, will it come preinstalled on all iOS devices namely the 5s and 5c?

    I am asking because I want to buy the iphone, but would like to see iOS8 preinstalled prior to purchase.

    Get any device before the 17th and it'll have iOS 7 on, after that, iOS 8.

    Eventually yes. It does take a few weeks for the iOS 7 stock to be depleted before iOS 8 devices are given out.

    It depends on how old the stock is.

    I do have to ask, why does it matter which version of iOS is installed? It's a free upgrade...

    According to Apple's online chat service, which now has pre-answered questions, it says that it'll come with iOS 7 installed for those shipped 'today' and that you will be able to upgrade to iOS 8 free of charge (of course). This is for the UK, but i'm sure its the same for the US and other countries.
