There are only a few weeks left in the month of August and the betas of iOS 16 do not stop coming out, already approaching what Apple wants to be able to launch and that all users who have a compatible iPhone can install it. Now, the question that many are asking is, when will iOS 16 be officially released? In this post we tell you everything you need to know about it.
iOS 16 release depends on iPhone 14
Habitually, Apple has always tied the release of the final version of iOS to the release of the iPhone. corresponding to each year, therefore, it is expected that this 2022 the movement made by the Cupertino company will be exactly the same. This is due to the fact that, in most launches, the iPhone each year has an exclusive functionality of that version of iOS, therefore, the iPhone 14 will have some function of iOS 16 that the rest of the models do not, and that for the moment It is not known, since until the presentation of these iPhones, Apple will not reveal.
Therefore, the first thing we need to know to know the release date of iOS 16 is the presentation date of the next iPhone, that is, the popular Keynote of the month of September. The most normal thing is that this is celebrated on Tuesday, September 13, because if we look back, we can see how the last events have always been held in the second week of September. However, they run very strong rumors that Apple’s plans may go through holding this event a week earlier than usual, that is, the tuesday september 6, or even the Wednesday September 7. However, until the Cupertino company issues the corresponding invitations, we will not be able to confirm the date of said event.
Once this information is known, it is normal for Apple to release the final version of iOS 16 the same week as the launch of the iPhone, which in turn is a week after its presentation. In other words, if the Keynote is finally held on Tuesday the 6th or Wednesday the 7th, on Tuesday the 13th or Wednesday the 14th of September, users will be able to install iOS 16 on their devices. In case the event is on Tuesday the 13th, this new operating system will not come out until Tuesday the 20th or Wednesday the 21st of September.
