After six beta iterations, it looks like iOS 7 is ready for the prime time. A developer, Owen Williams, revealed that an email was sent to developers, stating that iOS 7 GA (General Availability) will be released on September 10. The new platform, which was announced back at WWDC 2013 in June, had gone through several beta releases for developer use in recent months.
The interesting aspect here is the date itself. September 10 is also the rumoured launch date for the refreshed iPhone 5S as well as the new iPhone 5C. It could be that Apple may be gearing itself for a same-day release of the platform alongside the announcement of the new devices.
In addition, Apple has also begun trialing an iPhone trade-in program at some of its US stores. Customers can trade in their iPhones, which must be in working condition and has not been damaged by water before, where it will be evaluated by a member of the staff. Trade-in values vary between $100 to as high as $250, depending on phone model as well as their physical appearance.
