Could January 22, 2020 be the release date for iOS/iPadOS 13.4?

Possible released date for iOS 13.4

In the past, it was almost impossible to guess when a new iOS release date will be released. But I was recently looking over the current iOS 13.X release dates and it seems as though they are starting to follow some sort of pattern when you combine 13.0 and 13.1 “uptime”. What I mean by uptime: when an OS is released to when an OS is released after it. So for example, iOS 13.0 had an uptime of 5 days because iOS 13.1 was released five days after it.

This may be a huge stretch but I think it is worth pointing out the possibility Apple is following some sort of pattern for iOS 13. iOS 13.0 and iOS 13.1 combined had an uptime of 43 days. iOS 13.2 had an uptime of 43 days. Could this mean that iOS 13.3 will have an uptime of 43 days as well?

If Apple was to follow this pattern throughout the year and iOS 13, we would reach iOS 13.9 by July 12, 2020.

I will share my calculations below, along with the calculations of iOS 12 to show they did not follow any sort of pattern.

iOS 12.0 – 42 days September 17, 2018 – October 30, 2018
iOS 12.1 – 53 days October 30, 2018 – March 25, 2019
iOS 12.2 – 115 days March 25, 2019 – May 13, 2019
iOS 12.3 – 49 days May 13, 2019 – July 22, 2019
iOS 12.4 – 59 days July 22, 2019 – September 19, 2019

iOS 13.0 – 5 days September 19, 2019 – September 24, 2019
iOS 13.1 – 38 days September 24, 2019 – October 28, 2019
iOS 13.2 – 43 days October 28, 2019 – December 10, 2019

iOS 13.3 – 43 days December 10, 2019 – January 22, 2020 ???
iOS 13.4 – 43 days January 22, 2020 – March 5, 2020 ???
iOS 13.5 – 43 days March 5, 2020 – April 17, 2020 ???
iOS 13.6 – 43 days April 17, 2020 – July 12, 2020 ??? 
iOS 13.7 – 43 days July 12, 2020 – May 30, 2020 ???
iOS 13.8 – 43 days May 30, 2020 – July 12, 2020 ???
iOS 13.9 – 43 days July 12, 2020 – August 24, 2020 ???
iOS 14.0 – September ???
