    Default iOS 5 Official Public Release

    So do you guys have any idea when the official release will be? I'm trying to remember back to iOS 4. Did they wait for the day the iPhone 4 was shipped to the public? Or did we get iOS 4 for our 3GS before iPhone 4 was released?

    Probably October 12th. Ever since the 3.0 release they have put out the final x.0 software a few days before the phone release date, to avoid the crazy server crashes that happened on 2.0, which prevented a lot of people from activating their phones in the store.

    So yeah I'd have to say it'll be either the Tuesday or wednesday before the launch date. Although the GM (which non-devs can install if they want) will be available a few hours after the October 4th event in all likelihood.

    The gold master. In other words, the final version of the iOS 5.0 software. 9.5 times out of 10, they release it to the developers early.

    technically the GM is for Devs only. once the GM is released there will be copies somewhere online. just search diligently

    You'll need iTunes 10.5 as well. imodzone is a good place to start.

    Logically, we should see a GM on Oct 4 or just after, or maybe a Beta 8 with Siri assistant and new things not yet announced, then a GM a week after, just before iPhone 4S / 5 launch.
    So mid oct. seems a safe bet, no ?

    Now we just need the app developers to create apps that don't crash on here. I've been pretty happy with beta 7

    Dev site is running fine atm. Don't see any GM.

    Correction - Apple has seeded GM.

    So after learning what we did today...i have a few questions.

    Will my current iPhone 4 be upgradable to 64gb with an operating system upgrade?
    Will the new iOS 5 upgrade my camera to 8 mp?
    Will the iPhone 4 have SIRI?

    Thanks

    Answers: No, no, and I think no.

    Your hardware is what it is when purchased - and upgrading the OS can't change that. As to Siri on an iPhone4 with iOS5 - I'm guessing that Siri will need the processor upgrade of the 4S to properly operate... but I could be wrong - I think this is the first that Siri has been in the mix for beta-testing. If someone has it working on an iPhone4, we'll know soon enough.

    Bro I can't believe after reading your post that you should have any kind of phone, WAY to complicated for you.
