iOS 13 is currently in the developer beta and will be released in the public beta next month. But what if you are not ready to take the chance to run a beta OS on your iPhone? Here, Apple could release iOS 13 in a stable form for the public.
The beta test for iOS starts every June and runs until the beginning of September. Last year, Apple released iOS 12 with a total of eight developer betas for iOS 12, before the final Golden Master build was released in mid-September. For iOS 11, Apple also released a total of eight developer betas in 2017, before the GM for iOS 11 was released in mid-September.
But when were the public stable versions of iOS 12, iOS 11 and iOS 10 released?

- iOS 11: Tuesday, September 19
- iOS 10: Tuesday, September 13
And what about the public stable release of iOS 13? As you can see, Apple is generally releasing major releases of iOS in the second and third week of September, as well as earlier this week. That would mean that iOS 13 will be released somewhere between September 9th and September 17th.
A Report from iPhoneSoft cites an Apple developer source and says that Apple will release iOS 13 on September 16 for the public. It remains to be seen if this turns out to be true, but it keeps to the timeline that Apple has been following in recent years. Historically, Apple's early-September 9 release would be early in the day, and it's more likely that the GM will be released this week.
In general, watchOS and tvOS are released the same day as a new main iOS versions. We expect iPadOS to continue this year as well. The most important new MacOS versions are usually released in the week after a new iOS version. We will also get public beta versions of macOS Catalina, iPadOS 13 and tvOS 13 – but Apple will not release a public beta version of watchOS 6. Here are all the devices that support iOS 13 when it's released in September.
