iOS 7 has been in beta for quite a while, so few of the features are surprising. One new detail emerged during the announcement -- "Share Sheets", which offer easier social network sharing. We also had official confirmation of the Touch ID fingerprint reader support for the iPhone 5S.
Here's the direct word from Apple on when the updates arrive:
iOS 7 will be available as a free software update starting on Wednesday, September 18 for iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini and iPod touch (fifth generation).
Unsurprisingly, original model iPhones and iPads don't score the update.
iOS 7 is a major change for iOS users, both in terms of colour schemes and how the system operates. Check out the full details in our post below.
