While Apple’s upcoming iOS 10 update is definitely coming out this month, the exact date of its release is unknown. But singer-actress Barbra Streisand might have accidentally leaked the release date during an interview with NPR.
Sources say Streisand was talking about her new album before she spoke about virtual assistant Siri mispronouncing her surname. Instead of an “S” in the middle of “Streisand,” Siri would pronounce it as a “Z.” Streisand said she decided to call Apple CEO Tim Cook, who swore that the problem would be fixed in the next update.
“I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name finally, with the next update on September 30,” the entertainer said.
Did Cook tell Streisand that the update is coming out on Sept. 30?
As previously reported, the iOS 10 update would probably come out sooner than Sept. 30. Since the iPhone 7 was rumored to hit the shelves either on Sept. 16 or Sept. 23, the update would also be made available around that time.
According to PC Advisor, iOS 9 came out a week after the iPhone 6s was announced last year, so iOS 10 could follow this trend and come out a week after the Sept. 7 unveiling of the iPhone 7. There are also reports saying that a Sept. 7 release is possible to coincide with the announcement of the new iPhone.
Meanwhile, the development team behind the iOS jailbreak software, Pangu, has already been working on an updated tool in anticipation for the launch of the iOS 10. They have announced that the software will come out on Sept. 7.
The iOS 10 update will be compatible with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Pro 12.9-inch, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2, and the iPod touch sixth-generation.
