The iOS 13 update is still in beta, but the official release should come in September. With the iOS 13 release date getting closer, iPhone users should start preparing for its arrival.
Apple’s new operating system has been in beta testing in June. Those who want to try the software early can do so via Apple’s developer program or through the public (and free) Beta Software Program.
There are some great reasons to try iOS 13 right now. The update comes with an assortment of changes including Dark Mode, upgrades to Photos, a new Reminders app, and much, much more.
With iOS 13 beta testing starting to wind down and the first iOS 13.1 beta now out for iPhone users, all eyes are on Apple and the month of September.
iOS 13 Release Date
In June, Apple confirmed plans to release the iOS 13 update in the fall. The company didn’t attach a specific release date and we still don’t have a date as we push toward the end of August.
That said, we have a pretty good idea about when to expect the iOS 13 release for iPhones that are compatible with the new operating system.
Apple has sent out media events for its annual iPhone launch. As expected, the company will take the stage in Cupertino on September 10th.
There, the company is expected to showcase new hardware including the new 2019 iPhone models. The company should also confirm the iOS 13 release date during the show.
The 2019 iPhone release date is currently rumored for Friday, September 20th. If true, it would mean that the iOS 13 release date would land sometime between the 10th and 20th.
At this point, we’d circle September 16th, 17th, and 18th on the calendar as the most likely candidates for the iOS 13 release.
With the iOS 13 release date firmly on the horizon, it’s a great time to start preparing yourself, and your device, for its deployment.
In this guide we’ll outline some tips and tricks that should come in handy as we close in on the next major update for your iPhone.
Prepare for the iOS 13 Release Date
With the iOS 13 release probably just weeks away, now is a good time to start preparing your device for the release.
The iOS 13 update will probably require a significant download. After all, it's loaded up with new features and enhancements.
If you don't have enough storage available on your iPhone, iOS will temporarily remove some downloadable parts of the apps you've got installed on your device. Sometimes this isn't enough and you'll be forced to manually delete files.
If you're getting low on storage, use this time to cleanup it up. Go into your storage and delete the files (photos, apps, etc) you don't need.
Cleaning up your storage could also improve your iPhone's performance and it'll also help make room for the download.
You should also start backing up the data you store on your iPhone. If you don't know where to start, you'll want to dig into our guides covering iCloud backups and iTunes backups. This is an important step to take before you tap or click download on release day.
Data loss issues are rare these days, but there's always a chance something goes wrong during the installation process. It's better to be safe than sorry.
There's a chance iOS 13 logs you out of your apps and services so we recommend having your Apple ID/iCloud/third-party app login information handy just in case that happens.
