IOS 10 is already available to developers and they are testing it out. For this, you need to have a developer account. But Apple will be opening a program in July where they will allow all the users to test the beta version but make sure before downloading it, as it is beta version it may consists of bugs and make screw your device.

You can wait till September for a free update where they will be releasing it officially along with the new MacBook & I phone devices. This 3-4 months delay is usual, as they want to test it out with developers who are ready to test beta version and give feedback to them of any bugs or improvements rather than releasing it directly. so it's better to wait until September.

IOS 10 will be releasing to following devices

iPad mini 2 and later iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4

Apple will be releasing the iOS with the help of the carrier networks OTA update. So in US the update will be starting based on carrier priority for locked phones. US buyers may get the update from August last week onwards. In India, this release may arrive after 2nd week of September for the locked phones. It could arrive earlier if the mobile operators roll out the updates in their servers. For those enrolled in Apple developer program, they can get the stable updates and patches to the iOS same day from WWDC release.

The iOS10 update released for the developers is not final release. And the update has bugs and still in beta. So apple is taking feedback on the bugs before finally rolling out the update before the new phone release.

Following smartphones will accept new iOS 10 update - iPhone 5 and later (iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE). So yes, 5/5S/5C series is going to get the notice for update once the update available for the network.

Apart from phone, here are some devices that will accept the new iphone iOS 10 update - iPad 4 series ( iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro), iPad mini 2 and later (iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4), iPod touch 6th gen. iPod Pro 4th generation devices are discontinued from this update. So last update is last of their life-cycle.
