    iOS 6.1 released in January following iOS6.0's September 2012 release... expect similar with iOS7 until there's a date certain released by Apple.

    Given that Apple just came out with iOS 7.0.3, I think it will be a while before we see another update coming out.

    somewhat related question: am i correct that apple's OS updates are not subject to carrier approval? if so, why is apple able to bypass carrier approval of OS updates versus, for example, non-nexus devices running android?

    (i'm aware that OS updates to the gnex were subject to vzw's review/approval.)

    All iPhones of any specific generation are the same besides being CDMA or GSM. There is no UI that differs on iPhones to run with the OS. I don't believe there needs to be carrier approval. iPhones are not going to rendered useless because of a potential OS and manufacturer UI conflict.

    Apple has agreements with carriers that they own the update process. Apple seeds OS updates to carriers for review before they publish them officially, but Apple controls this process, not the carriers. It's one of the perks of being the company with the iPhone, you get a little more control over carriers than other companies do.

    Also, I would expect 7.1 in January. They could surprise us with a November release, but it's doubtful. Not much will be done in December due to the holidays.

    Unless there's an unexpected bug there probably won't be an update until after the first of the year.

    7.1 won't be out until sometime in 2014. The question should be will the beta for 7.1 come out by the end of this year or in January.

    With tons of people getting there hands on the iPad Air and Retina iPad Mini over the next 30 to 60 days moving us into the holidays, and iOS 7.0.3 being put through its paces on those platforms, could anyone possibly see a 7.0.4 update?

    This ... Plus no Carrier branding, or CrapWare!
    Not many people know this, but I happen to be quite famous ...

    I read about an exploit recently that might necessitate an update if it is indeed true. I doubt we'll see any update with substantial features before the 7.1 update (as others have stated, probably not until after the holidays), but I doubt we'll even see substantial feature additions then.

    Love it when the right question is asked: probably the biggest reason I buy iDevices - no Bloat, no Branding, no Intervention, no Redundancies, nothing to slow your experience down. Clean, smooth, and consistent improvement and polish of all that is iOS (not just every new gimmick slapped on, but rebuilt all originals, then if there's something new, make sure it makes a users experience easier, not make it frustrating). To answer ur questions: Apple is the only company with enough caliber to fend off carrier's "habits", yet be so popular that carriers have no choice but offer these devices. In a nutshell, you want to sell iPhones - you're gonna sell them the way we designed them - for the consumer. Maybe it's just me but that how it feels.
