    So I've been updating from beta to beta via OTA, but I am out of town for a week or so and won't be back until the 20th, at which point the official iOS 7 build will have been pushed out.

    Question: I know that for the GM to be installed, you need to have a beta version of iTunes, etc.

    BUT... if I wait and just update to iOS 7 once its officially released, will I need to install the GM first, or can I update directly from iOS 7 Beta to iOS 7 final.
    (I'm assuming when iOS 7 is pushed, so will a new version of iTunes).

    Sadly, I am a developer (nothing too exciting), but I never took the time to learn about how iOS updates are pushed out (I should probably do so...)

    You can't update from the Beta channel to the Public Release channel.

    You'll need to download the ipsw when it's released and manually update it on iTunes.
