By Kat Hannaford on at

The next version of Apple's iPhone and iPad software will be updating devices on September 18th. In case you missed our hands-on of the beta version back in June, take a look here.

Tonight though, Apple confirmed that Siri would be tweaked for iOS 7, using the example "what's Lady Gaga saying," which would pull in recent tweets from that particular Twitter user. Why you'd want to, mind...Still, at least it also works with Wikipedia and other news sources.

iTunes Radio was also demonstrated; Apple describes it as the best way to discover new music. You can create your own stations, with over 200 features crammed in.

Also shown off tonight? The Camera Roll now contains something called "Moments," which will group all of your photos into times and moments, similar to how iPhoto works. In case you didn't previously hear, it's also now possible to add filters straight to your images, in Apple's native camera app. Uh-oh, everyone's a hipster now.

Available for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and whatever else iPhone-shaped Apple announces tonight. Along with iPod Touch (fifth-gen), the iPad 2 and later, and the iPad Mini.
