iOS 9 Release Time: 3 Things You Shouldn’t Wait For

The iOS 9 release date is only a few hours away, and all eyes are on Apple and Wednesday’s release. With an iOS 9 release time still missing, we want to take a look at a few things to expect as we approach the update’s arrival.

Earlier this month, Apple confirmed the launch of several new products. The company announced plans to launch two new iPhone 6s models at the end of September, an iPad Pro in November, and a brand new iOS 9 update this week.

The star of the show wasn’t the iOS 9 update, but the iOS 9 release date was one of the most exciting details to come out of the iPhone media event.

Apple’s iOS 9 operating system was first announced in June and is finally ready for public consumption after months of beta testing. Like many other iOS users, we are extremely excited because we know what iOS 9 is capable of.

While iOS 9 is very similar to iOS 8, it brings a lot to the table. It comes with a new Notes app, improved battery life for iPhone, a new keyboard, a different font, and more. An exciting update for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.

The iOS 9 release date has been confirmed, but the iOS 9 release date has not. Apple confirmed a date but didn’t tell us exactly when it would release the update. That’s why we’re doing our best to prepare iOS users for the update’s exact arrival time on Wednesday.

With just a few hours to go, we want to take a look at a few things you shouldn’t expect from Apple’s iOS 9 release.

iOS 9 Release Time Surprises

Apple has not confirmed the release date of iOS 9. We don’t expect the company to make any announcements unless Tim Cook announces the iOS 9 release time on stage tomorrow when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert debuts.

Even if Tim Cook announces an iOS 9 release time on stage, we don’t expect this timeframe to be much different from the company’s regular release window.

iOS 9 Review - 8

The iOS 8.4 update was released at 8am PT (about one to two hours earlier than usual), but the iOS 8.4.1 version is back to the company’s usual release time. We’d be surprised if the iOS 9 update arrives well before 9am PT or well after 10am PT.

Apple is a molds company and rarely deviates from the script. Don’t expect it to translate the script on the iOS 9 release date. Prepare for an iOS 9 release between 9am and 10am PT.

Zero Installation Problem

With iOS 9, Apple made some big changes to the iOS installation process. Instead of requiring a huge amount of free space to install, iOS 9 will only require 1.3GB of free space to install on the iPhone 6. Other downloads should be similar.

This is a huge improvement for 8GB and 16GB users as it means they don’t have to delete files or upload them via iTunes. With these changes in place, we don’t expect the same volume of complaints at Apple that we usually see fired at in and around iOS launch.

However, this is a major iOS release and we will likely see some installation issues affecting iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users.


We will likely see some iOS downloads getting stuck (restart your device by holding power and home button to clear the stuck) and possibly some server issues affecting those trying to download as soon as the update is released.

If you want to avoid these problems, we recommend waiting a few hours for the smoke from the release of iOS 9 to subside.

iOS 9 Download Time Issues Will Last All Day

If you decide to download the iOS 9 update as soon as it’s released, you should expect to encounter long download times as Apple’s servers are flooded with requests.

We struggled with hours of setup on iOS release day, and we’re not expecting anything different from this year’s iOS release time. We should see long download times affect the iOS 9 release date. We don’t expect them to last all day though.

Long iOS download times often dissipate within a few hours of initial release. So if you want the smoothest possible installation process, you probably want to avoid the iOS 9 update when it first comes out.
