iOS 7 for iPad could be delayed
As the September iPhone event draws near, 9to5mac has heard from its sources some fresh info regarding the launch of the iOS 7. The good news is that apparently, the release scheduled is maintained for the iPhone version of the operating system. When it comes to the iPad, however, the story is a different one.
According to the information, Apple might push back the release of iOS 7 for iPad by a whole month. Apparently developers are still stumbling upon some stability issues and are having a hard time fixing them. The iOS 7 has first seen the light of day at the WWDC 2013 back in June and has been subsequently been released to developers in multiple beta versions. The latest one was iOS 7 beta 6.
If iOS 7 for iPad and iPad mini would indeed get delayed, this would constitute a onetime occurrence. So far Apple has managed to synchronize the launch of its next generation operating systems with all its mobile devices. But this time Apple began working on the iPhone iOS 7 before it started to do the same for its iPad counterpart. Hence the delay shouldn’t be taken with such a shock.
But there’s another side to the story. The iOS 7 is expected to be a true makeover of the Apple operating system, so the general public will have to get accustomed to it. Therefore from this point of view, it makes sense to release the iPhone iOS 7 at one time and let people get the hang of it and then come out with the iPad iOS 7 version.
