Apple’s next mobile operating system, iOS 9, now has an official release date: September 16.

The company first announced the update in June, with transit directions in Maps, a new Flipboard-style News app and promised improvements to Siri and Spotlight. There will also be iPad-specific features, including support for split-screen apps. Developers have already been able to try out early versions of iOS 9.

Much of the recent discussion around iOS 9 has been around the new content blocking capabilities, which will allow users to install extensions to block ads and other content in Safari.
