    If your currently running the new iOS5 Beta GM version, will your device still update when they roll out the final version sometime later today? Or is there another route that would have to be taken to update Itunes and IPhone??

    As i understand the GM does not expire, it is the exact same ios that the new iphone 4s has.....

    Correct. If you try to update the GM, it'll just say your software is already up to date.

    There is no such thing as GM Beta. Beta than GM. Beta before GM. GM means Golden Master. The version released on October 4th is the same version Itunes will be loading on the 12th and the same version all Iphone4S's have.

    I think if Apple and everyone else would stop using the term ios5 GM it wouldn't confuse people. But than again when I saw the term golden master I just googled it and all my questions were answered

    You would think it would still ask for an upgrade seeing as the GM is still missing some things. Like "find my friends"......

    Find My Friends is available in the app store now for free. Or go to www.iCloud.com on your iOS device.

    The GM (Gold Master) for software works the same for recording music as well. When we finished a record, we would send the master to the Mastering Engineer and he would send us a Gold Master (GM) of whatever album we sent him. It just means the "final product," which Apple always releases days before it's publicly available for one last run by testers/developers to see if there are any major bugs.
