According to Nuance, the company behind Siri, iOS 7 will see a release to the general public on September 10th. That just so happens to be the same day we expect to see new iPhone devices revealed. Coincidence? I think not.

September 10th release of iOS 7 seems like a no-brainer


According to a mailer sent out by Nuance, the firm behind the very technology that makes Siri whir, iOS 7 will see its release to the general public on September 10th. If that day rings a bell, it’s because that is also the date pegged for Apple’s iPhone refresh event. Who would have guessed? A hardware and software refresh on the same day.

Even if Nuance is simply speaking on an educated guess or assumption, there’s no reason to believe Apple won’t release the first GA (general availability) build concurrently with the launch of the rumored iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. iOS 7 currently sits at beta 6 on developer devices, with speculation pointing to one final beta release before the Jony Ive-influenced overhaul of Apple’s mobile OS goes public.

iOS 7 brings a totally new aesthetic to iOS, forgoing “skeuomorphic” design elements for a flattened, simplified appearance. The update also adds in new features like Control Center, improved multitasking, and AirDrop for file sharing. iOS 7 will be available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5 alongside Apple’s new device launches.
