During the WWDC keynote, Apple said to expect the iOS 17 public beta in July.

Here’s a look at the last few years of the first public beta releases:

With next week including the July 4 holiday on Tuesday and many Apple employees likely taking time off, it may make the most sense for Apple to release the first public iOS 17 beta (alongside the third dev beta) during the second week of July

However, there’s always a chance Apple could launch it in the first week of July.

Official public release

  • It’s likely iOS 17 will come out in mid to late September unless Apple switches things up
  • If Apple has its iPhone 15 event the week of September 11, we could see the new iOS officially launch the week of September 18.

Here’s a look at the last four years of iOS releases:

  • iOS 16: September 16, 2022 (after September 7 event)
  • iOS 15: September 20, 2021 (after September 14 event)
  • iOS 14: September 16, 2020 (after September 15 event)
  • iOS 13: September 19, 2019 (after September 10 event)
