iOS 6 release date set for September 19

Apple will release iOS 6 as a free download on September 19. The new version of the mobile operating system features a variety of new features, including Siri support on more devices, an all new Maps application with directions, FaceTime over cellular, iCloud synced Safari tabs, and a lot of subtle refinements to the core iOS experience.

iOS 6 will be compatible with the following devices: iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3rd gen, iPad 2, and the 4th gen iPod touch, in addition to the iPhone 5 and new iPod touches, though the latter two devices will ship with iOS 6 pre-installed.

The September 19 availability is a few days before the iPhone 5 release on the 21st, and several weeks prior to the release of the new iPods in October.

Expect to find iOS 6 as an OTA update, as well as the traditional routes of downloading through iTunes and IPSW directly from Apple.

    Why the hell would they have a jailbreak, and an untet at that, before iOS 6 is even released?

  6. Ringthang says:

    Bobby yes there is a jailbreak, waiting on release of ios 6 before releasing .

  7. b0bby says:

    Because. With a Jailbreak i can add tweaks like: Activator.
    Install iGotYa. Add Brightness for Activator. Changing music without looking at the screen. Play music without touching the screen. Work with Terminal. SSH on the phone from my terminal. And vice versa.

    They should ban Appsync not Cydia.
    People ( morons ) are thinking that it’s the same thing. IT’S NOT.
