When will iOS 9 be released?

iOS & iPadOS

I am very interested on Apple iOS 9, and I can't wait to try the multitasking feature on my iPad Air. I have seen many rumours on the release date of iOS 9, but no certain answer. So I have two questions:
When will iOS 9 be released exactly?
Will iOS 9 come with iPhone 6s(iPhone 7) or will be released early?
Thanks for your reply!

Hi Fiona,
Ios 9 will be released with the new iPhone models. I'm not exactly sure if they;ll have iOs 9 on them from apple, but it will probably be released when the new phones are released with apple's fall press release, as well as el capiten, not sure if it's spelled correctly, but hope this helps you.

I can only guess but I reckon the new phone will be out early Sep so would assume iOS9 would be released on that day whatever the exact day will be

Yeah, that makes sense. I'm sure that they'll do what they've done previously in late september or early october.

When does Apple release the new phone models?

The new iPhone is set to be released in early September. Patience is truly a virtue.

This might give you a good idea of when they will probably release it they are scheduled to have their yearly release keynote on 9 September so the private release it a little before or a little after 9 September probably after that knife or on the knife

I heard from Tim that OS9 will be released on 09/11/15 and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will go on sale on 9/14/15.

And if you believe that, I have a bridge in London for Sale. Haha I think it’s safe to say those who know will not say it and those who don’t know will speculate.

Sorry I can’t tell you the date because either I am not allowed or I don’t know.

Take care,

There is most likely a release date, the public just doesn't know what it is yet. We will know when Apple wants us to know.

There are only rumours about the release date of iOS 9. According to MacRumours(http://www.macrumors.com/roundup/ios-9/), Apple is already working on the first update to iOS 9, iOS 9.1. It is not known what features are included in iOS 9.1, but development on the operating system update commenced before iOS 9 was even released to the public.

The Applevis team has, every time a new OS is about to come out, asked that questions like this not be asked. Why does this continue? The new OS will be out when Apple releases it to the public.

At this point, it is not known when Apple will release iOS 9 to the public.

If history is any indicator, Apple has, since 2012, held media events in early-mid September. iOS releases have generally been a week or so after the media event, with the new iPhones hitting store shelves a couple days after the new iOS launches.

While there is nothing in Apple's NDA that prohibits speculating about the release date of iOS 9 (no features or other specifics about the operating system are being discussed, thus no disclosures of confidential information have been made), what it comes down to is that we won't know 100% for sure until Apple announces details at their next media event.

I agree with Michael here.
If Apple has their events in September then iOS 9 would be released.
