Apple has confirmed the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 7 will be made available on 18 September.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook revealed the news at a press event in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, confirming the iOS 7 update will be available as a free download for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5 and iPad 2 and beyond from 18 September.
Apple unveiled iOS 7 in July listing it as the firm's biggest software update since the launch of the first iPhone. Key changes include updates to the fonts, 'flat' design and quick settings menu which can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. The OS will also boast a new card-based multi-tasking system, an updated Safari web browser and a revamped photo gallery.
The OS is also confirmed to come preinstalled on Apple's newly unveiled iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones. The smartphones were unveiled alongside the final version of iOS 7 on Tuesday.
The iPhone 5S is the company's new top-end smartphone. It features a host of new upgraded components including Apple's latest A7 smartphone chip. The iPhone 5C is available on two-year contracts or as SIM-free starting at £469 for a 16GB model.
