There is no way Swift 3 doesn't ship with iOS 10 in September. 

I think he meant point releases after 3.0 (3.*) will be in 2017 (3 vs 3.* vs 4 was trying to convey this I believe). 

Swift 3 has to ship with iOS 10 because lots of us are building and updating to iOS 10 and using swift 3. Apple would have a lot of angry developers come iOS 10 if they couldn't submit their apps...

But of course, Chris can clarify :)
