iOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. Originally unveiled in 2007 for the iPhone, it has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Mini and second-generation Apple TV. Unlike Microsoft’s Windows Phone and Google’s Android, Apple does not license iOS for installation on non-Apple hardware.

iOS is derived from OS X, with which it shares the Darwin foundation and various application frameworks. iOS is Apple’s mobile version of the OS X operating system used on Apple computers.

Major versions of iOS are released annually. The current release, iOS7, was released on September 18, 2013. It runs on the iPhone 4 and later, 2nd-generation iPad and later, all models of the iPad Mini, the 5th-generation iPod Touch, and Apple TV.
