It’s Coming! Apple Pushes iOS 5 GM

By , Oct 4, 2011

Although it wasn’t mentioned during the presentation, Apple just made iOS 5 GM available to developers. This Golden Master update is as close as it gets to the official release of iOS 5, which will happen on October 12th.

You must use iTunes 10.5 beta 7 to install iOS 5 GM seed on your devices as the iOS 5 GM seed is not available via over-the-air software update feature…

iOS 5 GM is available from the Dev Center for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

  • Ross

    lol no

  • Burge

    So Seb , are you getting the i4s or are disappointed like most of the readers of iDB ?
    For me it’s a must , I just might pay off my contract and get it ASAP or wait till my upgrade is due which is jan..but I don’t think I can wait that long..

      I am getting it. I would lie if I said I was stoked by the design, but man this phone is going to kick ass!

      • Burge

        The design …last year it was ..just look at it …wow..
        I missed out on the i4. ( the White thing ) but this phone still has the wow look about it..and now it’s got the insides to match the out side , i’am so glad the apple pushed back the White i4 they made me stick with my 3GS a bit longer and it was worth the wait…

    This is great news but PLEASE – if you find a weakness to allow a Jailbreak don’t release it until the final Gold Version is released! Then again, do whatever you want – it’s up to you guys anyway :)

    • Burge

      Don’t worry no untethered jailbreak will be released yet ..the devs will wait for the i4s to be out first ..they need to jailbreak that first..

      • AltF4

        How can there be an untethered JB this soon already? After they killed i0n1c exploit, he predicted that there may never be an untethered JB again…

      • Burge

        And then came out jaklbreakme 3.0.. So much for that prediction

  • DebTym

    does ios 5 makes ip4 slow? like what ios4 did to 3g

    • Burge

      No , the 3G just couldnt cope with ios4 , the 3G was made for ios2 it could manage ios3 but iOS 4 was to much…I’ve had iOS 5 on my 3GS and it works great on it..your i4 will cope no worrys and it won’t be slow at all..you will be good for iOS 6 aswell

  • Manu

    Jeff.. When will you prepare IOS 5 for 3GS users?

  • Lewis

    so when can we get IOS 5, not today?

    • Will

      +1

  • Spencer

    As the iPad 2 is loaded up with the A5 Processor, does anyone know if Assistant will work on the iPad 2??

    • DH88

      From the way it was presented, only the 4S will have Siri (it’s not called Assistant). Since it’s the only thing (aside from beefed up internals) that has defined the new device, it’s hard to see the feature going to any other iDevice. Here’s to hoping the jb community finds a way to port it.

  • Joshep

    Do i need dev account to install it?

    • AltF4

      If you want to install it 8 days before the release (as in, today), then yes of course you do.

    • Me

      Nope, no UDID checks are in the GM.

  • Mathieu R.

    So iOS5 GM is now on my iPhone 4. Siri is not there like said before.
    The sad thing is that we don’t even get the text to speech on the keyboard.

    • Dylan

      Siri is only on the iphone 4s

    • Grike Stently

      are you a developer? or did you break it?

      • Mathieu R.

        Dev.

        And I mean it sucks that they can’t even add voice recognition to the keyboard for apps.

  • Will

    Is there any possibility of Siri working with ip4 aswell on firmware update ?

    • Joshep

      Jailbreak Maybe

  • Dylan

    YOU DO NOT NEED UDID FOR GM!!!! I CAN CONFIRM

  • mbuza

    what about gevey turbo sim? does anybody know will it work with GM version! how to preserve basabend? tnx

  • Chris

    Is there any date when iOS 5 GM gets unusable like previous Betas, or does they stop doing that in final builds?

    • Alex

      No, nope and nada.

  • Giancarlo
