If you’re not in the market for a new iPhone and just want to get your hands on the new mobile operating system, your wait may soon be over.
According to an email sent from a developer, iOS 7 will be available to the public on September 10, the same day as Apple’s anticipated iPhone event.

The Verge reports an email was sent by Nuance, the company who’s responsible for Siri, to developers yesterday, encouraging them to test the speech components of their software ahead of the September 10 iOS 7 launch to the general public:
Owen Williams, the developer who received the email, says that this is “about as real as it gets outside of Apple itself inviting the media to the event,” in light of Nuance’s relationship with Apple in the past.
It also means that the release of the new iPhone (or iPhones if the rumours of a mid-range model are true) will probably come shortly after September 10, too. There has never been a day-of release of the iPhone alongside its announcement, so it’s unlikely – although not impossible – that it would be the case this time around.
