First time beta tester. Wondering if it will come through as an update today?
No, though we could get a 11.0.? or a 11.1 beta this week.
You'd only see an update if the actual release build is different than the one released as GM last week.
Got it. So going forward if the beta client is still installed we will receive both beta and official releases if either is newer?
Betas will almost always be newer. Release versions follow the betas. The GM is different in that it is simply a pre-release of the release candidate.
With iOS 10 last year there was another update on release day. So it can happen, but not always.
You'll have to opt out of the beta program if you want to continue with official releases. Can't get both afaik. The betas are newer but may contain bugs.
So if I delete the beta profile today, will iOS 11 GM continue to work, or is it somehow disabled if I delete the beta profile and opt out?
The GM will continue to work. If you delete the profile, you will no longer get beta updates, but you will get the regular ones.
If you do delete the beta profile, be sure to restart your device or software update will still be looking for the beta updates. But no, deleting the profile will not disable your device and you'll still get the official public releases
I am not 100% sure, but from memory, this is not true. The official update really based on the iOS version number, not build number. Even the final release is newer than the GM, but since the system read that you are already on 11.0.0 (the system won't consider GM as beta), it won't shows update available. In this case, you will require to install the iOS once more via iTune to get the real final release.
I am very sure at least one of the GM work like this. However, I couldn't remember if that's a iOS GM or MacOS GM, therefore, not 100% sure.
This has happened with macOS because the GM candidates and releases are only distributed as full installers, not as patches through software update.
Maybe I’m mistaken but I was pretty sure this happens with iOS as well. Maybe I am misremembering like the other poster.
In any case, I was not prompted for an iOS update today.
iOS 11 hasn't been released to the public yet, so nobody who's not in the beta program has been prompted for an update at this point.
In the old days, both GM and final release can only be full installer. This is also a test of the installer, not just the OS itself.
Apple release combo update for iOS 11.0 GM this time? I have quite a few 32bit apps running on my phone (they are all discontinued, no chance to get an update), therefore, I try to delay my OS update a little bit, didn't join the beta tester this time.
Bearing in mind the GM doesn't have the "plasma" wallpapers that are shown on the 8/Plus and X, we could get a new version today....
I doubt if that's only available for the new iPhones.
The wallpapers are not a secret, don't require any complicated coding, no need to debug. If Apple want to give this wallpaper to all iPhones running iOS 11, it should be already in the GM.
AFAIK you will always see beta even if you remove the beta profile. This is one of the reasons I opted not to try the beta cycle this year. Last year, in order to se official releases, I had to wipe the phone, remove the beta profile and do a fresh install of iOS 10.x. Same went for MacOS.
iOS 11 is out and I didn’t get an update. My daughter did.
You mean: The GM is different in that it is simply a pre-release of the final release.
The GM is the same. We just refer to it as the GM until the same thing is pushed out to everyone.
This is the first time in a couple of years we’re the GM wasn’t what was pushed out to users.
So the GM is different than the public release of ios11?
So if I have the GM how do i update to the official one?
