Apple releases iOS 10 Golden Master

By , Sep 7, 2016

iOS 10 Lock screen status bar teaser 001

Since launching a developer-only preview of iOS 10 at WWDC back in the summer, public beta testers and developers have been able to test-drive a plethora of cool new features coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch this fall. Well, Apple’s now finished work on its most significant iOS software update in years as iOS 10 just reached a Golden Master status.

Labeled as “iOS 10 GM”, it’s the same build that end-users will see when the software update launches for public consumption.

Today’s Golden Master edition of iOS 10 follows an eighth beta for developers and seventh beta for public beta testers, both of which released on August 26, 2016.

Apple said at today’s event that iOS 10 will release next Tuesday, September 13.

  • samyg

    Can we update the GM to the public release via OTA?

    • Dexter

      Usually the GM is the final release. There was a time when the GM wasn’t the final release and I can’t remember if you could update via OTA

  • Omar D. Plumey

    I’m a public beta user and I don’ see anything…

    • VITICO

      Don’t think public beta testers get the GM versions.

      • Omar D. Plumey

        The article states “today’s golden master followes an 8th beta for developers and 7th for public beta testers”

    I might sound like a noob but how do I download the public beta? I registered but when I click on the iOS tab, nothing happens, nothing to download. What do I do?

    • VITICO

      Public Beta testers don’t get GM versions..

      • dagaz

        We do now. Installing on my iPhone 6.

  • TheShade247

    So after downloading it shows 10.0.1


    mine says i have another ios 10 download.. wonder if we got the 10.0.1 in error lmaoooo

  • Javiers

    Now… The old question arises once more. Should I update or keep my JB…

    • I personally updated to iOS 10. Jailbreaking isn’t as fun to me as it used to be before.

  • Budz Camacho

    I want to upgrade to IOS 10 GM. But I dont wanna lose my JB on my 6s Plus

  • I’m not seeing the GM update on my iPhone. Do public beta users have to wait longer?

    • dagaz

      It’s there now.

  • w7r

    This is I get to update , my question it is the GM?

    • Tim Liu

      Yes it is.
