If we eventually just upgrade into the iOS 7 GM, will there be remnants?

Im assuming we will just upgrade until we upgrade out of beta and into a final GM right?

But akin to how sometimes its recomended to do a fresh install, do you guys think in theory a fresh install of iOS 7 GM vs a progressive update from iOS 6, to Betas 1/2/3/4/5/6 and finally to GM would be any performance difference?

However slight...

I think it would be in your best interest to have a full install of the GM. Certainly wont hurt.

Apple always highly recommends doing a clean install of the GM.

I've been doing OTA updates since beta 1, but I will be doing a fresh install of the GM.

clean install of any GM new iOS release is always the best way possible to enjoy your new OS.

I remember seeing it awhile back. They don't do the GM as an OTA. Even though you can update with the .ipsw in iTunes, it probably means they'd prefer you restore than update.

Everyone on iOS 6 can use OTA to update..."probably means" is not the same as "highly recommend".

What are you talking about? I'm saying you can't OTA from the final beta to the GM. I'm sure there's a reason for that...

If you do a clean restore and revert to your backup, would there still be remnants?

Yes if the backup is of an earlier beta. You're putting on what you took off.

Could likely simply be because the final beta is still a beta and the GM is essentially a regular public release, so essentially to separate the two. There can be other implications perhaps, but it can mostly be simply to differentiate the beta process from the regular release process.
