Software Release Dates
At its keynote, Apple did not detail when its 2019 batch of software updates would be released. That’s inherently strange, since Apple usually announces the iOS release date onstage alongside new iPhones. This year, Apple only included the release date for iOS 13 in its press releases.
The release situation is also fairly confusing. iOS 13 and watchOS 6 are coming on Thursday, Sept. 19. iOS 13.1 and iPadOS will drop on Monday, Sept. 30 (which explains the beta cycle weirdness for iOS 13). Apple also revealed on Tuesday that macOS Catalina won’t debut until October.
