Any Apple fan would know that on June 6, 2022, Apple released iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and many other notable updates to WWDC22. Among the new features are the Lock Screen widgets, changes to Focus modes, Apple Pay, and other features. But the big question is when can we expect them to be released? Are these updates likely to be received sooner?
We have all been waiting for the release of a stable version of iOS 16. But before the release of the final version, Apple plans to release some beta versions of it. If you don’t want to wait that long, you can opt for the option to install the first developer beta version of iOS 16, which was released right after the announcement of iOS 16 at the WWDC event. The iOS 16 public beta will soon be released to the users in July 2022. And we can also expect many beta versions to be released before the iOS 16 final update. When it comes to iOS 16 release date, there will be several releases that we can expect, including the developer beta, public beta, and the formal public debut.
Release date stable version iOS 16
Apple usually unveils the next version of iOS at the WWDC keynote and makes the first developer beta available in a few hours. The first free public iOS beta is usually released three to four weeks after the first developer beta, with the official public release after the iPhone event in the fall.
All of the features announced at WWDC 2022 will be available to the public this fall, according to Tim Cook. This indicates that iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS Ventura will be accessible between September and December 2022. This time frame matches Apple’s regular release schedule, meaning iOS 16 will be available in the third week of September, about a week after the new iPhone was unveiled.
As for the final release date of the stable version, we know that iOS 16 would be released in September this year. But since Apple hasn’t given us a specific release date yet, we can only assume the date by following the pattern of the last release. By looking at the earlier release date of several other iOS versions; iOS 14 released on 16e September 2020 after the event at 15e September, iOS 15 was released on 20e September 2021. So this would mean that if Apple cancels its event on 13e September 2022, iOS 16 may be released on 19e September 2022, or in that week of September. While the public release is always in the fall, usually in September to match the release of the latest iPhone 14. More point releases like iOS 16.1, iOS 16.2 and so on with bug fixes and new features will come shortly in the coming weeks and months. be released afterwards.
All we can do now is wait patiently for the final stable version to be released. You can download the beta version, but follow my advice, it’s not too reliable. I recommend that you wait until September for the official release of iOS 16.
Until next time, with a different topic. Until then, Toodles.
