    Hey
    Right now I'm on the beta 6 and people said before that any new version that will be released I will be able to update via ota. So why can't i do so with the gm release?

    I don't know why specifically. All I know is that you can't so login to your developer account and download the GM and then connect your device to your computer, fire up the iTunes app and then upgrade or wait until the 18th and see if Apple makes the official iOS 7 release available OTA.

    It's designed for devs to download and install on their test devices to make a final check of their apps on iOS 7. It's not a big deal in that case not to have a OTA update.

    I always betted that it had something to do with the GM being a non-activation required release. The beta's all need developed activation to do OTA, whereas the GM doesn't. With required activation, it assured Apple that only registered developer devices are receiving the update. Something they cannot do with a GM release, which is why only registered developers can download from the portal.

    Not really sure if thats why or not... but there were plenty of people running the betas whose devices werent registered with the dev program. Just look around the forums... so not sure that had anything to do with Apple's logic in this.

    To the OP... the bottom line is that iOS 7 GM not available as OTA and you have to use iTunes to get there from here.

    The public release may be OTA, but not sure if it is, if it will work going from the beta releases... you can install GM now via iTunes or wait until Wednesday to see.
