Apple iOS 7 will arrive to hundreds of millions of devices next week. Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed today that iOS 7 will be released to most iOS devices on September 18, introducing a slew of new features and a radically different user interface. Apple had already detailed a laundry list of changes made to iOS 7 at its WWDC conference earlier this summer. The company today highlighted a few more changes and revealed that the software will debut with dozens more next week.
iOS 7 will be available only to select Apple devices, and a few features may not be available if hardware performance does not allow. Apple says that an update to iOS 7 will arrive for the iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini, and the iPod 5th generation. It will almost immediately become the world's most popular mobile version of software, Apple claims, because so many different devices will be on iOS 7. Apple will ship its 700 millionth iOS device next month, which is behind the 1 billion that have shipped running Android, but a sizable chunk of active Android devices run older software. Apple contends its latest version of software will be available on more devices.
