    Sorry its probably be answered a million times but these threads disappear so fast as new ones are created and I've not seen a definitive answer yet..

    I have Beta 6.
    Currently downloading Itunes 11.1
    Ive clicked 'check for update' on itunes 11.0.5 and it says i have the latest version even though its still a beta?

    Will I need to manually do an IPSW file? I do have the GM.ipsw file but i was waiting for itunes 11.1.

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes you have to do it manually. Just option click and choose your ipsw file.

    Looking for a spot to download the .ipsw

    There a handy link for that anywhere?

    What happen if we restore? Do we still have to download from some where? I'm at work still an stock with b6.

    Yes, you can't go from Beta 6 to general release. You will need the ipsw file. If you were in the development program (which I'm guessing you weren't), this wouldn't of been a problem and you would have had iOS 7 last week with the GM.

    thank you.

    will do this once itunes 11.1 has downloaded.

    I just googled and got a download from a blog site.

    Nope... Im one of those annoying apple fans that registered his UDID for £5 and just wanted to see what it was like. Been using it since B1 and I like it and havent had problems.

    I downloaded the GM the day after it became available but I have been in morocco since with patchy wifi so dont want to rely on icloud back up so I've been waiting for itunes 11.1 so I can restore that way.

    If you have the GM then don't bother updating, as your updating to nothing!

    As I said. I downloaded the GM.ipsw file onto my laptop but didnt load it to the phone as I was waiting for itunes 11.1

    I was wondering if i could just forget the GM and go straight to the public release but as it doesnt seem to be recognising that (as my phone already says its on ios7) then I will go back as use the GM file I downloaded last week.

    So just to be clear, GM is the final version and will not expire?

    I'm trying to do the same thing. Links are up on Redmond Pie. Trying to manually upgrade and I keep getting an error saying it isn't compatible. Running an iPhone 5 on Beta 6

    Might have to restore back to iOS 6 then update to iOS 7.

    My iTunes 11.1 identified that my iOS 7 beta 6 phone had an update. I let it run the update normally through iTunes and my phone now has 11A465 on it.

    No manual .ipsw required.

    I tried this but kept getting hit with the error message, so I am now downloading an .ipsw

    Do I just shift update or should I shift restore (I have already backed up my phone).

    Hmm. You should be able to just update from the ipsw. If that doesn't work, you can always restore.
