iOS 13 release time: When the new iPhone update arrives and how to download it

About iPhone
The iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. All generations of the iPhone use Apple’s iOS mobile operating system software. The first-generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007, and multiple new hardware iterations with new iOS releases have been released since.
The user interface is built around the device’s multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and can connect to cellular networks. An iPhone can take photos, play music, send and receive email, browse the web, send and receive text messages, record notes, perform mathematical calculations, and receive visual voicemail. Shooting video also became a standard feature with the iPhone 3GS. Other functionality, such as video games, reference works, and social networking, can be enabled by downloading mobile apps. As of January 2017, Apple’s App Store contained more than 2.2 million applications available for the iPhone.
Apple has released twelve generations of iPhone models, each accompanied by one of the twelve major releases of the iOS operating system. The first-generation iPhone was a GSM phone and established design precedents, such as a button placement that has persisted throughout all releases and a screen size maintained for the next four iterations. The iPhone 3G added 3G network support, and was followed by the iPhone 3GS with improved hardware, the iPhone 4 with a metal chassis, higher display resolution and front-facing camera, and the iPhone 4S with improved hardware and the voice assistant Siri. The iPhone 5 featured a taller, 4-inch display and Apple’s newly introduced Lightning connector. In 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5S with improved hardware and a fingerprint reader, and the lower-cost iPhone 5C, a version of the 5 with colored plastic casings instead of metal. They were followed by the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with models featuring 4.7-and-5.5-inch (120 and 140 mm) displays. The iPhone 6S was introduced the following year, which featured hardware upgrades and support for pressure-sensitive touch inputs, as well as the iPhone SE—which featured hardware from the 6S but the smaller form factor of the 5S. In 2016, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which add water resistance, improved system and graphics performance, a new rear dual-camera setup on the Plus model, and new color options, while removing the 3.5 mm headphone jack found on previous models. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released in 2017, adding a glass back and an improved screen and camera. The iPhone X was released alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, with its highlights being a near bezel-less design, an improved camera and a new facial recognition system, named Face ID, but having no home button, and therefore, no Touch ID. In September 2018, Apple again released 3 new iPhones, which are the iPhone XS, an upgraded version of the since discontinued iPhone X, iPhone XS Max, a larger variant with the series’ biggest display as of 2018 and iPhone XR, a lower end version of the iPhone X.
The first-generation iPhone was described as “revolutionary” and a “game-changer” for the mobile phone industry. Subsequent iterations of the iPhone have also garnered praise. The iPhone is one of the most widely used smartphones in the world, and its success has been credited with helping Apple become one of the world’s most valuable publicly traded companies.
As of November 1, 2018, a total of more than 2.2 billion iPhones had been sold.

It is also perhaps the strangest iPhone update in recent years, since many of the headline features will not actually arrive for another two weeks, with the release of iOS 13.1 on 30 September. That will bring a range of bug fixes for problems that still exist in iOS 13, as well as the features that have been held back.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

iOS 13 release time: When the new iPhone update arrives and how to download it

The iPad and Apple TV also won’t be able to get the new update until that same date. WatchOS will arrive on time, being available to download at the same time as iOS 13.

iOS has traditionally arrived at 10am in Apple’s local pacific time. That’s 1pm Eastern, or 6pm UK time.

Downloading it is simple: head to the Settings app, and press “general”. The software update option will be in there, and clicking the relevant buttons will make your iPhone start downloading and installing iOS 13.

In the past, this process has been fairly slow in the minutes after the update goes live. That means that it can be easier just to wait for a few hours, at which point the interest will have calmed down and the downloads will have sped up.

With last year’s iOS 12, Apple introduced the option for auto-updates. So, if that’s turned on, the phone will offer you the option to schedule the download to happen overnight, which could be a good way to avoid the long wait that the update requires.

The watchOS update should arrive at the same time. That is done by opening up the “Watch” app and clicking “general”, where the software update option can be found.
