Release Date and Time for iOS 16: When to Expect the New iOS Update for Supported iPhones
On September 7, Apple revealed its new iPhone 14 series at the Far Out event. With the exception of the iPhone 14 Plus, the new iPhone 14 series will start selling in India on September 16. Apple said at the presentation that iOS 16 will launch on September 12. All eligible smartphones in India and other markets will receive the new iPhone software upgrade.
The corporation withheld the precise moment of the release of iOS 16. However, it is realistic to assume that Apple will issue the update for users in India late in the evening based on the prior rollout timelines.
When will iOS 16 be available to Indian iPhone users?
On September 12, Apple will make the latest iOS 16 upgrade available to iPhone owners. The corporation withheld the time, although it is anticipated that the next iOS version will launch at 10.30 IST. In the past, Apple has updated the iPhone’s software in India at 10.30 p.m. The future iOS release will likely be the same, as expected.
The update has occasionally been released later than usual, despite this. In contrast to customers in India, who received the update at 1.30 am on September 17, 2020, iOS 14 was released at 1 pm PT on September 16, 2020. This release time is three hours later than usual. But every year at 10.30 IST, iOS 15 and some of the most current iOS updates were made available to consumers.
Even while one can predict, there is no guarantee that the new iOS update will launch at 10.30 IST because there has been no official announcement on the timing.
Users, meanwhile, can start preparing to download and install iOS 16 by taking a backup of their data on the iPhone. It is also worth noting that the update might take some time to download and install initially since many users are likely to be updating their iPhones to the latest software on the evening of the rollout.
What models of iPhone will receive the newest iOS update?
The list of gadgets receiving the new iOS 16 update has already been confirmed by Apple. The new update will be pre installed on all models of the iPhone 14 series. As expected, the iPhone 13 series and the iPhone 12 series will also get the new iOS update. This means that the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max will get the upcoming iOS update. In addition to this, the iPhone 8 series, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 series and some other models will also get the new iOS update.
