As widely expected, Apple confirmed the official release date of iOS 10 at a media event held today at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. iOS 10 will be released on Tuesday, September 13th.
Announced at WWDC in June, iOS 10 includes new and updated built-in apps with a major focus on the iPhone. With iOS 10, Apple has rethought widgets and notifications, created an entire new app ecosystem within Messages, which also supports stickers and other fun touches, redesigned the Music app, added a new Home app, let third-party developers into Apple apps like Maps, Messages, and Siri for the first time, added Memories and other enhancements to Photos, and made a myriad of other changes big and small.
Apple hasn’t announced a Golden Master seed of iOS 10 yet, but it will presumably be released to developers later today. Typically the last developer release before a public launch, the GM seed will allow developers to make final preparations to submit their iOS 10 apps to the App Store.
