The iOS 9 update arrives for the average user this fall. Apple did not announce any specific iOS 9 release date yet, but September is a likely month for the update to arrive.

Apple traditionally releases the new iOS update two days before the new iPhone release date and the iPhone 6s release is very possible in late September based on Apple's history.

The iPad Pro release date is set for September according to a Bloomberg Business report in March. Another recent report suggests the iPad Pro release date will not arrive until 2016.

With iOS 9 arriving in fall 2015 with clear upgrades that will make the iPad Pro possible there is a good chance that the iPad Pro release date is planned for soon after the iOS 9 update and iPhone 6s.
