This is the possible release date of iOS 16, anyone can install the new operating system on their iPhone right now.
Apple has already presented iOS 16, revealing all its news and new functions, even launching the betas of the system, so it is enough to know when is iOS 16 officially released. It’s a date that Apple never officially reveals, it all depends on many factors, but we can guess quite accurately.
There is a long road of development ahead of us, because we will have 3 months of beta versions until the system is mature enough to make public. Therefore, its release depends on both the development of the system and the release of new iPhone models. Apple very rarely releases the new version of iOS before introducing the new iPhone.
iOS 16 release date
There is nothing official, so you have to rely on the experience of previous versions. Apple historically released the new version of iOS after its September event, sometimes it was done the next day and on other occasions it was delayed for up to a week. Here are the release dates for each version of iOS in recent years:
- iOS 15: September 20, 2021 (after the September 14 event)
- iOS 14: September 16, 2020 (after the September 15 event)
- iOS 13: September 19, 2019 (after the September 10 event)
- iOS 12: September 17, 2018 (after the September 12 event)
- iOS 11: September 19, 2017 (after the September 12 event)
As we can see, Apple has always released new versions of iOS a few days after the presentation of the new iPhone, except for the year 2020 where the presentation of the iPhone 12 was delayed by a few weeks. So, Apple is expected to follow this same strategy in 2022
Analyzing the calendar and the month of September this year, Apple could present the iPhone 14 between September 13 and 15, so iOS 16 between September 13 and September 19, 2022rarely is it much more delayed.
The developer beta of iOS 16 is now available for anyone to install, given that it is a beta, yes. It is expected that the the public beta is coming in early Junecoinciding with the third developer beta.
