    I'm relatively new to iOS. Is the new watchOS usually released the day of the announcement (today), a week later, etc? Is it released to developers first and then the public?

    I've fought off the urge to install the developer beta, but I might just go for it now if it is going to be a while.

    We will know in a couple of hours. I've never seen a product released on the same day as the Apple Keynote, but anything is possible. Normally the only thing released on the day of the keynote is the new iOS.

    Just so we are clear I was asking about watchOS, not the watch itself. Yeah I guess we will see in a couple hours. I was just wondering about historically how it worked.

    Allow me to apologize, I misread the question. Yes Apple normally releases the watchOS and iOS on the day of the Apple Keynote.

    I thought that they usually release the last developer beta (the "gold master") on the keynote day, and the final release is usually a week or so later? For example, watchOS 3 was announced on Sept 7 last year, and was available on Sept 13.

    Of course, it could be different this year....

    Interesting. I thought they released all new OS's on they same day as the Keynote once the Keynote is over. Your guess is good as mine, but that's what I remember.
