With the announcement of an October 12 ship date for iOS 5, Apple today posted the Golden Master (GM) release of iOS 5 to developers this afternoon, with a build number of 9A334.

Apple notes that users "must use iTunes 10.5 beta 7 to install iOS 5 GM seed on your devices. iOS 5 GM seed is not available via over the air software update" and encourages users to back up their devices via iCloud before installing the GM.

Apple posted a GM seed of Xcode 4.2 as well, and notes that the GM seed "can now be used to submit iOS 5 applications to the App Store for review."

Doesn't appear to have Siri, leading me to believe it's a 4S exclusive feature.

It was mentioned as such at the keynote ... Schiller said, "And that is Siri, the most exciting new feature of the iPhone 4S".

However, it may be able to be activated if a false/true string exists in the plist ... but performance on the iPhone 4 and the effect of enabling it may turn your iPhone 4 into a snail.

They tied the Assistant feature into the iPhone 4S and mentioned it as a feature of the iPhone 4S. I suspect that is the case and it is not going to be available for the 4.

I'm hoping this GM release will work the same as in the past for non-developer users as long as I use iTunes 10.5 beta 7?

Wishful thinking to have it on the iPhone 4! :D

Um, is there an OTA update for this? Or is this a clean install?

Clean install.

If it fails you'll be able to install 4.3.5/4.2.10 again. GM builds usually don't fail, although I suspect this one will if you don't use the specified iTunes 10.5 beta 7.
