The Tech Giant is currently in the process of developing the next major update. iOS 13 will be presented for the first time at the company’s annual developer conference, the WWDC 2019, which will take place this June. According to previous years tradition, it is expected to be released to all users in September, along with the launch of the new iPhones.

Of course, the new iPhones that will be launched in September will receive exclusive features on iOS 13.1, will be released in a first development version in October.

If you’re using an old iPhone iPad device and it’s in good shape, we’d suggest starting to save and even selling the older model that won’t get support iOS 13 updates, except for the security updates.
