We’re just hours away from the iPhone 5s iOS 9 release date and it will be here before you know it. With a release on the horizon, we want to take a fast look at a few things iPhone 5s users should keep in mind ahead of the iOS 9 release.

Last week, Apple finally took the stage to announce the products in its fall pipeline. The company confirmed an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Apple TV 4, Apple Pencil, iPad Pro, and an iPad mini 4. The company also outlined the iOS 9 release date.

In June, Apple confirmed an iOS 9 release date for the fall but it failed to announce a specific date. This is standard Apple iOS release protocol.

On stage, Apple finally confirmed when it would take the iOS 9 update out of beta confirming an iOS 9 release date for September 16th, or, this Wednesday.

iOS 9 doesn’t come with a ton of visual changes but it’s going to be an important update for the iPhone 5s, Apple’s former flagship from 2013.

The iPhone 5s iOS 9 update is the device’s second major iOS update and it brings new features on top of performance enhancements. It’s a significant update and one that you should have your eyes on as we approach Wednesday’s highly anticipated roll out.

With a release just hours away, you should be thinking about the iOS 9 features, the iOS 9 release time, and some other smaller details like the potential for iOS 9 problems.

We want to share a list of things we think you should be watching for ahead of the iPhone 5s iOS 9 release date and on the release day itself. You’ll want to be mentally prepared for the iOS 9 release and this will help you get started.

    You’d expect Apple to make this release strong for the 5s, no, since Apple still sells the product?
