We all have been wondering when is Apple going to release iOS 8 firmware. And we deserve to know, right?

If you remember, we mentioned that Apple will be releasing iOS 8 firmware on September 10th of this month. Guess what?

We converted the timezone into our local time, and we did a pretty bad job at that.

Realizing this major mistake, we quickly updated our article to reflect the changes. Where? On our iOS 8 Release Date page.

Note that we frequently update iOS 8 page regularly, so all the meat — from time, location, date to download links — are available on that page, which is worth bookmarking.
