Release of iOS 7 for iPad Possibly Running Behind Release for iPhone

It looks like Apple may be considering releasing iOS 7 for iPad a few weeks after the new version of iOS is released for the iPhone. At least according to what 9to5Mac is hearing:

While iOS 7.0 for iPhone is locked for the iPhone 5S launch in mid-September, there’s chatter inside Apple about the potential of holding back the iPad version for an iOS 7.0.1 release between late September and October; perhaps alongside fresh new iPad hardware.

This would be no great shock of course, since development of iOS 7 for the iPad has been said to be running behind the iPhone ever since iOS 7 was unveiled by Apple. This was reinforced by the first iOS 7 beta coming to the iPad two weeks after the first beta for the iPhone.

Although I’m as impatient as the next iPad fan to see iOS 7, a few weeks more waiting for the final release for iPad is not a big deal. I do hope we’re going to see some news about the iPad from Apple in the next month or so – it’s been a long (calendar) year of no new iPad releases.
