    It was... via the dev portal.

    Since GM is not intended for the masses, the implications are that iTunes will be updated when iOS 7 is released to the public.
    Wait....now I'm confused...maybe im just slow today, i haven't gone into the Dev Center yet but is there a iTunes 11.1 Beta 3 or is it still at Beta 2?

    It was stuck for 15+ minutes. I resorted to putting my iPhone in recovery and restoring. I have a PC so I suppose I cannot install the GM.
    You can install it. It just won't connect to your iTunes again once it's been installed, until you have iTunes 11.1 installed.

    So back up to iCloud if you want to do the proper restore process to update it and then restore your old content/settings. (Otherwise, "update" and keep your other stuff.)

    I'm rockin' and rollin' with the new OS. It's a billion times faster! j/p, simple bug fixes, and now I can pull up the drawer from the bottom while in messages.

    For those of you who go looking for iTunes 11.1 Beta for Windows, it doesn't exist. Only for Macs.
    So if you install the Gold Master on the latest Windows version of iTunes, it'll install. You just can't
    sync your stuff back on iTunes. Only through an iCloud backup.

    It’s still beta 2, which is all one needs to be able to install/sync. The discussion was relative to the general public. There will be a new release of iTunes (11.1) that is associated with the public release of iOS 7. The issue at hand is the number of non-devs who want to install the GM version, but can’t get the latest iTunes version (11.1 b2) that supports/allow it.

    Trying to update to GM but I keep getting this message:

    The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (4027).

    I downloaded the ios 7 GM from the apple site, went to itunes, held down option + restore iphone (clicked the GM file) and I keep getting that message.

    Anyone know what I am doing incorrectly?

    Not having iTunes Beta for Windows is a pain in the backside! GM version installed but because I did a clean install i'll have to wait until it hits Windows for me to be able to sync my music

    Still, GM is lightning fast, the new wallpapers & ringtones are petty awesome too. A few minor bugs fixed.

    So far so good. I like the new tones and ringtones. The additional colors for the dynamic wallpapers is a nice touch as well. The 'sent' sound in messages sounds a little different. Very pleased.

    Does anyone who's downloaded the GM know if some of the more persistent bugs were fixed, like the signal issue and the lack of a call ignore button on the lock screen?

    I am shocked at the lack of posts about the new features. Has anyone noticed anything new aside from the stock wallpapers and new ringtones?

    Decline is there.

    No signal issues


    Most that I have looked up so far at work. Seem to be squashed. Still looking it over.

    Do you know if decline shows up when the screen is asleep and a call comes in? That was the bug I meant.

    On lock screen when sleep. It only answer. But to decline. I hit the power button and it bumps the call to voice mail.

    Really? Wow. Very surprised they didn't fix that bug, unless for some strange reason it's intentional.

    I think it's intentional. But not 1000% percent sure.

    Wish iTunes Radio was a stand alone app with its own icon instead of being integrated with
    the music app. But I'm just nitpicking

    Nice new wallpapers.

    All the problems on my iPad 2 seem to be fixed, and it's going quickly again. (It'd slowed down greatly, with beta 5.)

    Even the Podcasts app is working again on the iPhone 5.

    This is an operating system that has most of the glaring bugs worked out -- it's running as smoothly as it was at beta 3. (Betas 4-6 added problems.)

    If memory serves, there was no DECLINE (or IGNORE or other wording) from the lockscreen before. Only when the phone was already unlocked.

    I am running Itunes on Windows Vista computer, I have been able to do this before with IOS7 beta, (only kept on phone for a day), but if I run into problems upgrading to IOS7 GM, and I put the phone into DFU mode will Itunes for windows be able to restore the phone back to the currently signed IOS 6.1.4? Has anyone tried this and know if it works? Thanks so much!

    Also wondering if when upgrading to IOS7GM in Windows if you are better using shift+Update or shift+Restore? Thanks!

    I am surprised that Apple never brought back the panoramic wallpaper feature, I thought it was really cool (and only a little buggy). Maybe they will release it down the road with a future ios 7 update?
