Apple releases iOS 10.2.1, iOS 10, and OS X 10.10.1 for iPhones, iPads, Macs
Apple Inc. said Tuesday it would release iOS 10 for iPhone, iPad, and Macs on Thursday, and it will also release OS X Yosemite, a version of the operating system for the Apple Mac that includes a new version of Apple’s open source Apple Watch operating system.
The move comes a day after a software update for iOS 10 failed to detect the new Apple Watch OS.
Apple had initially said it would be rolling out an update to iOS 10 on Wednesday, but it has not confirmed that date.
The iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c are among the models with software updates due on Thursday.
Apple has said that the devices have been running the software updates for the past several weeks.
Apple’s move to release the software update on Thursday is a change from the company’s previous pattern, which typically releases the software for iPhones and iPads after they have been updated.
The company previously has not said when it will roll out the software to new iPhones, although Apple has previously said that it will release updates for iPhones as soon as possible after the hardware is certified to run the new OS.
