Apple only mentions the date on its website! Most likely, the iOS 17 release time won’t be published anywhere because this could clog up the servers!

A new OS release is a big deal and millions of users will try to download the new software in the same time causing a heavy strain on the servers!

However, we can anticipate that iOS 17 will be released in the first part of the day, Cupertino time, that’s PT, or Pacific Time. the company is usually releasing new software at 10am.

It can also happen for the iOS 17 release to be drip-fed to worldwide users in order to avoid congestions. In this case some iPhone and iPad users might get the update instantly while others will have to refresh the Software Update screen for a couple of minutes or tens of minutes!
