iOS 13 is almost here.
At Apple’s “By Innovation Only” event on Tuesday, the company announced that the next major update to the iPhone operating system will arrive on Thursday, September 19 — just one day before it launches its new iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max phones.
Announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June, iOS 13 adds a bevy of new features and updates to existing apps, like Reminders, Notes, and Mail. We’re also looking forward to a handful of quality-of-life improvements that will really change the way we use our phones.
To download iOS 13, just visit the System Preferences application on September 18 and wait for an “Upgrade” button to appear. You can watch social media to see when it’s available, but the update usually goes live shortly after noon Eastern time.
