It is common knowledge that Apple's new operating system iOS 10 will be introduced in the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but nobody is sure when it will be made available to other eligible devices. Interestingly, Apple CEO Tim Cook has reportedly leaked the release date of the software to singer and songwriter Barbara Streisand.
Apple is expected to release its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on Sept. 23 with iOS 10 pre-installed and is very likely to be pushed out to other devices a week later. Barbara Streisand claimed on NPR (national public radio) that the new software will be launched on Sept. 30.
The 74-year-old star said that she called up Tim Cook over Siri making the "S" in her middle name sound like a "Z". "He (Cook) delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name finally with the next update on September 30th," she told NPR (via Pocket-link).
It is not sure if Tim Cook was talking about iOS 10.0.1 update or availability of the firmware to all eligible Apple devices.
The Cupertino giant announced the new software at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016 and it came with several enhancements, including Apple Music, Messages, QuickType keyboard, Siri and User interface.
The OS will be rolled out to iPhone 5 and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 4th generation, iPad mini 2 and later, and iPod touch 6th generation this fall. This means handsets like iPhone 5, iPhone 5c,iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro 12.9-inch, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad 4th Generation, iPad 3rd Generation, iPad 2, iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, 4, iPod Touch 5th Generation, and iPod Touch 6th Generation will get the new OS update.
However, Apple devices like the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 will not get the software update.
