iOS 10 Release Date Set For On September 30, As Per This Claim


It seems the wait is almost over for the iOS 10 release date, as Apple has already refined it with iOS 10 beta 7 and public beta 6 for developers and testers. If KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo prediction of iOS 10 would drop this coming September 23, then we would more than likely except that to be true. Did Barbara Streisand, a legendary singer and actress leak the release date for iOS 10, suggested that Apple would update its software a week later on September 30, then you may not immediately take that claim seriously.

As she has long taken exception with the way Apple’s digital assistant, Siri, pronounces her surname. In the recent interview with NRP, singer pointed out that Siri still speaks her name wrong, pronouncing as a ‘z’, rather than the soft “s” that it actually should be. It seems that Streisand took the right away, used her fame and influence to contact Apple CO Tim Cook directly. That damn phone call seems to have potentially let us know about when Apple plans to release iOS 10.

The phone call to Tim Cook seemingly resulted in two outcomes; first, Cook presumably apologized to the legend and agreed to make amendments to Siri to ensure that her name is pronounced correctly in the future. Secondly, according to the singer, Cook confirmed that the fix would be rather added to the next update of iOS, which was confirmed to be arriving on 30th September 2016.

Although the Apple’s iPhone 7 media event is rumored to be happening on September 7, and Apple’s next iOS update happens to be iOS 10. Apple has initially released major iOS releases like iOS 10 to public a week after their new iPhone event. If that the case, and the interview stands correct, then it seems like the new firmware release will be coming later than expected.
