iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are currently in beta, but many people are more interested in the release date. So, when can we expect the updates to arrive?
We can expect the release date of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to fall sometime in September, based on previous releases
It’s always an exciting time when Apple releases a brand new software update in beta. The clock starts ticking and we all start to wait for the new big thing to arrive. If you’re wondering when iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will finally get to your device, let’s take a quick look at the latest major updates released worldwide:
- iOS 13 was released on September 19, 2019 (Thursday)
- iOS 12 was released on September 17, 2018 (Monday)
- iOS 11 was released on September 19, 2017 (Tuesday)
- iOS 10 was released on September 13, 2016 (Tuesday)
Given the above information, there is no specific day of the week (Monday to Friday) that Apple chooses to release its software update. But the most common trend here is that these software updates arrived just before a new iPhone was released. In addition, major iOS updates always come before September 20 and after September 10. Although we cannot make a good estimate regarding the exact release date, we can make an informed estimate based on the above dates that the update may arrive in the week starting on the 14th and ending on the 18th. Keep in mind that Apple doesn’t release software updates on weekends.
There are several tweets and rumors floating around suggesting the release date of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will fall on the 16 September. If you like to be a complete believer, you can go ahead and save that date in your calendar.
Despite the current situation, it is also difficult to say whether Apple will do things differently this year. Given Apple’s delayed iPhone 12 delays, there’s a chance that we’ll see a similar trend towards the software side. But hopefully that is not the case. Fingers crossed.
