Apple confirmed at the iPhone unveiling in Cupertino today that its latest mobile operating system – iOS 7 – will launch on September 18 and will be free for all users.
Apple’s head of software Craig Federighi detailed that the OS will be coming to the iPhone 4 and newer versions, the iPad 2 and later as well as the iPad mini and fifth-generation iPod Touch. As TabTimes has already reported, iPad 2 users will only be able to use a handful of iOS 7 features.
The Apple exec briefly showcased iOS 7 running on an iPad at the press conference and claimed that the update will feel “like getting an all-new device”.
“Downloading iOS 7 is like getting an all-new device. One that’s so much more useful and elegant than ever before.”
