iOS 6 Expected To Arrive At 1 P.M. Eastern, 10 A.M. Pacific

What time will iOS 6 arrive in your country?

With iOS 6 making its public debut today, I’m sure some of you are sitting in front of iTunes with your iOS device plugged into your computer, mashing that ‘Update’ button as much as humanly possible in the hope that any time now, Apple will open the gate. Well, you may want to give your fingers a rest, because it could be a few hours yet before iOS 6 drops.

According to a timetable posted on Twitter (above), and picked up by Fortune’s Philip Elmer DeWitt, iOS 6 will make its public debut at 10 a.m. Apple time today. That’s 10 a.m. Pacific, or 1 p.m. Eastern, or even 6 p.m. U.K. time.

Of course, we can’t verify that this timetable is legitimate, so there’s a chance iOS 6 could pop up at any time. (The timetable was posted to Twitter by a man who claims: “Beyonce is my wife. Nicky Minaj is my mistress.” So take from that what you will.)

But if my memory serves me correctly, this is the same time Apple has released major iOS updates in the past.

While you’re waiting for the update to arrive, check out our comprehensive guide to everything that’s new in iOS 6 and see exactly what you have to look forward to.

    I may be wrong, but I don’t think the iOS 6 upgrade will come over-the-air, will it?

    You are wrong. I can’t decide if it is disappointing or disgusting that you are so lazy that you didn’t bother to answer this question yourself. Then again you are a blogger not a journalist so why have your facts straight, or do any real work.

    Straight from Apple’s website, took me less than a minute to find it on the iOS 6 info page:
    “iOS updates are free. And they’re available to download wirelessly on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch the moment they’re released. Your device even alerts you when it’s time to get the latest version. So you won’t miss out on all the amazing features in new updates.”

    I thought Apple’s whole selling feature was that you no longer needed a computer to use an iPhone? I wouldn’t doubt if it’s WiFi only, but will still likely be able to be done without the use of your computer.
