    I have a Verizon wireless iPhone 4 running iOS 5 GM and I love it. However, I have a significantly higher battery drain. Is the GM the same as the final release or will they tweak it for the official release? I understand some may not know yet but what have they done in the past? Thanks.

    sometimes the final release does change but you may have to restore as new to eliminate battery issues

    I actually did that in the first place. Are you saying I should try it again. If so I would be more than happy to.

    Could be related to your jailbreak applications .... might not be updated to work perfectly with the new os yet. Usually the GM version is very close if not exact to the official release.

    The GM release is as close to "finished" as it can be at this point. It's the GOLD MASTER copy that is sent to the manufacturing site - and it's the version that is installed on all new phones coming out of the factory.

    It's possible that Apple will have an update ready to go on either 10/12 (iOS 5 release day) or 10/14 (iPhone 4S release day).

    nowhere in the original post was mentioning of being jailbroken so that's definitely case

    drown-in, if you did a restore as new without backup then i see no reason to do it again

    Thank you. However, I did do another "new" restore and it seems to have made a difference.

    Updates usually come soon after release of the OS and new iPhone for bug fixes. Not likely to happen before then. I only ever seen the GM version change once and that was iOS 4.2.

    Yeh, Apple will definately have a update after ios5 is released on the 12th for minor bugs,etc. But shouldn't be to many since its been in Beta for 5 months, lol. I think if we all complain about battery life Apple will do something to give us a little bit better battery, ha. I'm not saying theres battery issues by the way.

    I have given my phone the opportunity to "settle" and the "new" restore helped a ton. It was interesting that I started with a "new" restore and had terrible battery life and did another and it is amazing. I did download the IOS5 GM from two different places however so maybe that had something to do with it.

    I wouldn't Be surprised if there is an update by the 16th, especially as they are OTA, they can fix as they find!

    Try restoring your phone. At times, the GM and official release will result in a slight tweak.

    Go ahead and do it. You won't be sorry you didn't wait 2 days. Its a clean install and when its all said and done. You go through a setup on your phone with icloud, syncing, backup, findyourphone, wifi etc etc before you can actually use the phone.

    Sometime on Wednesday, 10/12. It will be available whenever Apple makes it available - most likely around 10am PST...

    This information is plastered all over the Apple universe as well as in multiple threads here at TiPb.
