Nuance Developer Email Claims iOS 7 Will Launch September 10

Nuance, the company which powers Siri's speech recognition capabilities, sent an email to developers using its API today claiming the General Availability release of iOS 7 will be delivered on September 10, according to journalist Owen Williams (via TheNextWeb).

It's unclear how Nuance would get this information, but it's unlikely that a company outside of Apple would have detailed information about Apple's iOS release plans.

Historically, Apple has released iOS Golden Master versions to developers on the same day as the announcement of new iPhones, giving developers time to test their apps with the final version of the new iOS before its release it to the general public a couple of days before the launch of the new iPhone.

Apple will reportedly announce the next-generation iPhone on September 10 and will likely unveil both the iPhone 5S and the lower-cost iPhone 5C. Both devices are rumored to launch in select markets on September 20.

Everyone who follows Apple news knows this date. So this person could be repeating it.

Not only does everyone (the fans) "know" that this is the date, they believe that Apple is going to announce new phones. But Apple actually hasn't said that yet. Rumors are a interesting thing.

(I'm just making a point. I do believe there will be a press conference that day and there will be announcements. I've already gotten my quote from Gazelle to correspond with 20th).

General Availability is different than Golden Master (they have different release dates) but the GM tends to end up being the GA. There is a difference, but just on who it is made available to in order to fix any last-minute bugs.


actually apples' iOS GA is the GM, since a GA comes before a GM and apple has never made a GA then release a GM for iOS... so if someone says GA then they mean the GM for apple iOS.

Something tells me there will be no event on September 10th

because Apple were supposed to send out the invites TODAY.

What a disappointment.
