Here’s when Apple will release the iOS 17.5 update for iPhone

Apple is working on the next major update to iOS 17, which will see the light of day soon. The company has released iOS 17.4 with some major changes that impact the general public and developers at the system level. The company is finally allowing iPhone users in the EU to sideload apps and install third-party app stores. Apple is currently working on releasing the next iOS 17.5 update for iPhone, which is currently in beta.

Apple may release iOS 17.5 as early as this week unless a Release Candidate is released

iOS 17.5 will include a number of additions focusing on feature changes and improvements aimed at users in the EU. Despite these changes, the update will also include a host of front-end tools. Apple today announced the launch of a new Apple Watch Pride Edition Solo Braided Loop strap with a dedicated watch face and wallpaper.

According to Apple’s press release, iOS 17.5 will be released “Soon‘ along with additional updates for Apple Watch, Mac, Vision Pro and iPad. However, the company did not provide an exact date or time, but we can speculate when the next update might hit your devices. Apple is expected to hold a “Let Loose” event tomorrow where it sees fit to announce new iPad Pro OLED and iPad Air M2 models.

That said, Apple could announce iOS 17.5 and other updates tomorrow at its “Let Loose” event. Moreover, the update will be accompanied by iPadOS 17.5. It was previously reported that the company is working on a dedicated iPadOS 17.5 update that will introduce essential features for the new iPad Pro OLED. While it’s possible that the update will be released over-the-air after the iPad Pro event, we’ve seen in the past that Apple releases candidate versions of major updates before their final release.

In this case, we may have to wait another week for the release of iOS 17.5. Apple usually releases software updates on Tuesday, and we can assume that the upcoming update will arrive on May 14 or earlier. At this stage, however, these are only speculations, the final word belongs to Apple. Note that the company may also roll out the update tomorrow as iPad Pro models with OLED display will be available for pre-order later this week.
