The tech giant Apple is all set to launch a series of software updates, including iOS 17.1, iPadOS 17.1, macOS Sonoma 14.1, tvOS 17.1, watchOS 10.1, and HomePod Software 17.1, to the general public. The anticipated release time for these updates is 10:00 AM Pacific Time, which translates to 10:30 PM IST.

Apple recently provided release candidates (RCs) for these upcoming software updates, a step that typically involves a week of testing to identify and resolve critical issues. This time, the rollout date has been confirmed due to a specific feature in iOS 17.1 intended for iPhone 12 models in France.
