Apple releases iOS 7 GM to developers


As expected, Apple has seeded iOS 7 golden master (GM) to registered developers of the iOS Developer Program.

Golden Master is the final build of iOS 7 before the software is publicly released, and usually has the same build number as the one that is burned onto new iPhones.

Apple had seeded the first beta version of iOS 7 immediately after the WWDC 2013 Keynote on June 10th, iOS 7 beta 2 on June 24thiOS 7 beta 3 on July 8th,  iOS 7 beta 4 on July 29th,  iOS 7 beta 5 on August 6th and iOS 7 beta 6 nearly a month ago.

As with all GM builds, you can’t do an OTA update from previous betas. The build is available for the following iOS devices:

  • iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4
  • iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5

Here are the download links (Note that you have to be a registered developer to download these builds):
