iOS 16.0 is ready and will be implemented in September with the launch of the iPhone 14. Apple Watch Series 8 and watchOS 9 are also on Apple’s back-to-school program. For macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16, as well as the new Macs and iPads, we’ll have to wait until October.
Apple is on track. While the next-generation iPhone is about to tip the scales, we learn from Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman that the Apple brand has completed the development of the first stable version of iOS 16 in mid-August 2022. 14s due in August will therefore be natively powered by the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. iOS 16 will also be available from its official launch on previous year’s iPhones through an update.
iOS16 with watchOS 9 in September, macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16 in October
In addition to iOS 16, Apple will also deploy watchOS 9. This means that the new Apple Watch, from the 8 series, should be presented at the same time as the iPhone during the major back-to-school conference of the Cupertino company.
According to Mark Gurman, this keynote could happen very soon, as it would take place on the Wednesday after Labor Day in the United States, which is September 7, 2022. And if Apple sticks to its usual schedule, the iPhones will go on sale 10 days later, after a period of pre-orders. On the other hand, we should not expect a launch of stable versions for macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16 immediately.
According to the same source, these wouldn’t be available to the public until October, along with the release of the new Macs and iPads. While macOS is used to evolving independently of iOS’s scheme, it’s unusual for iPadOS to lag so far behind its iPhone equivalent.
It is possible that this organization will remain in the following years, Apple prefers to launch its new main versions of OS at the same time as new products, and has chosen to reserve the iPhone and the Apple Watch for September, after that the Macs and iPad for October.
