Traditionally, Apple has launched new versions of its iPad operating system in mid-September, following a pattern established since iOS 6 in 2012. This trend persisted even after the iPad received its own distinct OS in 2019, separate from iOS.

Following previous years' practices, Apple will likely make the developer beta of iPadOS 17 available shortly after the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, which is scheduled for June 9 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET. The public beta will commence a bit later, allowing participants to sign up for free through Apple's Beta Software Program site.
