The release candidate in the last minute changes that Apple has provided, so let’s go ahead and dive right in now, aside from iOS 17.5 RC, Apple also released iPad OS 17.5 RC. We did not get an update from Mac OS today. We did get TV OS 17.5 RC for Vision Pro We got a Vision OS 1.2 beta 5, not the RC for Vision Pro today And Watch OS 10.5 RC was released for the Apple Watch.

Scattered Updates Today from Apple

So scattered updates today, Something a bit unusual, no Mac OS updates and Vision Pro is still not on RC for 1.2 as you just saw. Now there’s a few changes happening here. Again, this is the RC release candidate.

The download is 6.51gb basically 6 and 1/2 gigs. This means that iPhone is overriding the entire operating system because this is basically the same update that you’re going to get in just a couple of days now.

The latest bill number here, as you can see right there for 17.5 is 21F79 and so we can expect perhaps a second RC. I’m not quite sure just yet, but for right now that is the current RC available for 17.5.

Now this one as I mentioned will become available with 17.5, Will become available for the general public in the next couple of days.

I would say in less than a week or in about a week from today. I’m thinking on the 13th at the latest, so next week on the 13th. If Apple releases another second RC, it will most likely happen this Friday the 10th, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.

We’ll have to wait and see, I’m about 50/50 on that one, but the official release should happen next Monday the 13th unless there’s any delay. I don’t see this going any further in terms of betas and RC releases.
