This represents the final build that will be released to the public on September 18 for installation on existing devices. iOS 7 will also be included on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, which launch in the first round of markets on September 20.

    GM doesn't perform any checks (nor is it available OTA).

    Not seeing anything in OTA - is this going to require a restore?

    Would this be safe to download for non-developers?

    A good time for people to download, test, and downgrade when you realise how awful it is :rolleyes:

    Hopefully they've fixed all the Xcode / iOS7 bugs so I can get my apps ready to go, cutting it fine Apple.

    I hope they've changed back changes made in the music app. They need to collapse the artist albums back into grid view. As it stands now there all expanded in chronological order which is stupid and annoying scrolling through all the songs just to get to the song or album you want.

    Few questions...

    When restoring your iPhone or iOS Device, do you guys get an option of downloading the iWork suite, iPhoto and iMovie for free. I.e Can people with older iPhones set up their iPhone as a new one and download iWork for free?

    What happens when iOS 7 is released to the public next week? If this is the same one, does one still have to upgrade on Sept 18th?
