I heard (well ok i googled it) and it says the 10 of this month is a likely possibility. Does anyone know how concrete that date is?

I see it everyday on my misses phone and after having a play/look at it it makes IOS 6 look boring as hell. lol

Nobody knows for certain. Apple have a keynote on the 10th where the new iPhone(s) is likely to be revealed. Also staff leave has been curtailed between the 15th and 28th

Strongest rumour ATM is Keynote on the 10th, IOS 7 on the 18th and new iPhone on the 20th

Hopefully the apps continue to support 6 then since weve only had it 8 months

You should be fine with most apps, but it's got to be inevitable that some future apps will be iOS7 only.

I wonder if the official iOS7 release will be rolled out today as well?

Perfectly happy with the last beta as it stands - not a single issue i can think of, but i suppose a full release today would be nice.

Very doubtful as developers need time to issue updates to apple for their apps. Apple always release a gold master before any major updates so that developers can do final tests and submit their apps to apple who then need to check them.

Based on previous years the official release will be around 2 days before the release of the new iPhones. So expect it mid next week most likely.

Although, only Apple will know for sure, they may do things differently this year.

I think the GM(Gold Master) of iOS 7 will be released today after the iPhone announcement later today. GM for those who don't know is pretty much the final version before release. For what its worth, i think the new iPhones will be announced today & go on sale in the US on 20th Sept, then 28TH for the UK & other countries. However we shall no more at 6pm.

I'll be watching www.twit.tv about 5.30pm they will cover the announcement.

Nah, I reckon the UK will get it on day 1 with the USA and probably around 10 other countries (China?). Apple always hype up how many countries get a new product on day 1, so I doubt they will take a step back and only launch in the US.

Indeed. There are still apps that crash under iOS7 - LinkedIn works fine on iOS7 on the iPhone, but crashes on launch on the iPad.

If you have an iphone 4 or higher or an ipad 2 or higher, you can connect & download via itunes or do it direct from the phone

Maybe, maybe not Apple are pretty good these days when it comes to new launch day. I might wait a few days as i already have ios 7 beta 6 which works great.

Does that affect your warranty if you install beta?

The misses has IOS 7 beta 6 on her 5 and it has a few small issues, first being the signal stays on 5 dots all the time(no problem really) and the other is the fact that it froze up lastnight and had to be rebooted to work again, lastly sometimes when shes reading on wattpad(a reading app) it will just go back to home screen.

About this Beta 6, obviously when its out we can just click on update on IOS6 phones, but what about phones with IOS7 Beta 6 on? will that be the same, i.e click on update within the phone and it will update to the full version?

And anyone know how many MB's or GB's this download will be from IOS6 to 7? im guessing it will be in the GB's rather than MB's

Macrumours says the GM Version has been released to developers a short time ago. So the links should be available soon

Is it easy to download and does it affect your warranty?
