Rules for Appropriate Debate

Respect
Guidelines: Show respect for your fellow posters. Expect and accept that other users may have strongly held opinions that differ from yours.

Rules:

  1. Name-calling. Name-calling falls into the category of insults and will be treated as such according to the forum rules, your own opinion about another member notwithstanding. You can't call a bigot a bigot, a troll a troll, or a fanboy a fanboy, any more than you can call an idiot an idiot. You can disagree with the content of another member's statement or give your evidence or opinion to dispute their claims, but you may not make a negative personal characterization about that member.
  2. Insults. Slurs and insults against groups of people based on negative-stereotyping and obvious generalizations fall into the category of trolling and will be treated as such.
  3. Taunting. Mocking or taunting another forum member is not acceptable. Posts that ridicule another member or obviously exaggerate or misstate their views may be removed.

There will be no GM version for iOS 11.2.5. There weren't any GM version for point releases of iOS 10 or 9. If you're talking about the long build number which has '5' to indicate this version is built with the extra analyzing and logging tools enabled.

This build has build number 15D5059a (Debug version). They will release same version with logging tools disabled (Release version) with build version 15D59. All code will be same as today's beta in the final release, they will just switch off the debug tools by editing the property files like:

DEBUG_BUILD = TRUE (15D5059a / iOS 11.2.5 beta 6)
DEBUG_BUILD = FALSE (15D59 / iOS 11.2.5 release)

If they want to hide some features that will debut with the final version, RELEASE switch will do the trick.

RELEASE = FALSE (hide features such as Apple Watch app which shows Apple Watch 3 with red dot in the crown in the iOS 11.0 betas)
RELEASE = TRUE (enable features like iOS 11.0 GM)

Point version betas (11.x.x betas) can have short build number but this does not mean they are the GM version. Apple just disables the logging tools in these builds. Apple probably wants more info/data from the tester's usage regarding to under the hood changes in this release, hence they didn't release a version with logging tools disabled. They usually release beta releases with logging tools disabled when they have enough data regarding to changes in betas.

To clarify, GM version is the final version that has finalized SDK and APIs of a version that has a lot of new APIs and SDK.
