Here’s What’s New in iOS 7 GM


Apple has just seeded iOS 7 GM to registered developers of the iOS developer program.

Here’s what’s new in iOS 7 GM:

  • The Golden Master build has some new static and dynamic wallpapers. In previous builds, there were just two bubble-based dynamic wallpapers, but has now been increased to 7, possibly to match the new iPhone 5c colors:
  • As mentioned during the event, Apple has added new “textured” ringtones and text tones to iOS 7, which are a part of the Golden Master build as well. Hit play on this YouTube video to hear each of the new ringtones.:

  • Apart from ringtones, the alert sounds seem to have changes as well. The sound played when you charge the device and when you lock the device have been changed. Thanks Jeff and Jordan
  • Patrick, in the comments below, notes that switching between apps seems to be faster in GM than the betas.
  • iCloud Keychain has been pulled from the GM build, and likely won’t be a part of the public release either. More details in this post.
