Apple iOS 7 was unveiled back in June and is currently being beta tested by developers. Apple are yet to confirm when they'll release the latest version of their operating system, but we've now heard that it'll be released on September 10th.
This was confirmed in an email sent to a developer by Nuance - who are the company that produce Apple's Siri software. That's the very same day that Apple are expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and the affordable iPhone 5C - which will both come pre-loaded with iOS 7.
Which of Apple's current devices will get iOS 7?
Well, owners of the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will get the new operating system, while it'll also be available on the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and the iPad Mini. That's a good effort from Apple, although owners of the iPhone 3GS and the original iPad will naturally be disappointed.
After updating to iOS 7 it'll almost seem like you've got a new smartphone. That's because the latest version of Apple's operating system introduces an all new user-interface - moving away from the current design , which was first introduced in iOS 4.
Apple iOS 7 also introduces a new Control Center, iTunes Radio, Notification Center, Airdrop support and much more. You can learn all about the new iOS 7 features in our in-depth look at the operating system here.
