    It's still very buggy on my ipad and ipod at the moment there are still a few bugs i think the GM is not worth getting, waiting for the Public release is the better choice.

    Yeah i know lots of you probably have no problems but I am still experiencing slow animations and AirDrop crashes the photos app every few times

    Barring a major disaster, the GM *is* the public release. It's the version already being installed on all the new iPhones and the version to be seen next week.

    Final version will see widespread release next week, the developers have already received it. :)

    Apple: Congrats, I commend you for presenting us with a great iOS! Great job! It pretty much feels like a beta, I understand final releases have bugs in them, but come on! This does not feel like a GM, it feels like iOS 7 beta 6! Or did you just make this iOS specifically for the iPhone 5S and 5C just so that we would feel inclined to buy the new product lines? Not cool.

    This happens with every new iOS cycle - you can search in the forums. It's been said a million times that most of the problems are due to 3rd party apps not being updated for ios7 and conflicting with the memory management changes. That being said - on my iPhone 5 it runs great.

    iOS 7 GM is stable compared to beta 6 for the iPad. It works. I believe Apple focused on delivering a stable user experience, and I think in the next month or so we will at least get iOS 7.0.1 or 7.0.2. I cannot imagine Apple shipping the new iPads next month with this version of iOS 7.

    I don't have lag. Not on my iPhone 5 or iPad 4. And I upgraded from beta 6 (no restore). I only had some crashes with the settings app. Solved it by resetting all settings. Now everything runs great.

    Some people are more susceptible to these things than the others. There is no objective metric. It may suck for everybody and you would still get different opinions.

    No not at all - strange some do, some dont. Makes me think it has to do with applications that are installed
