how many betas are usually released before it goes gm?
As many as it takes before they get it right for the general public, their is no specific number.
I'm thinking at most, 3
If I remember correctly, there has never been more than 4 beta versions.
95% of the time they are released 2 weeks apart but with iCloud and Lion coming as well, it may be every 3 weeks.
WWDC was June 6th, and 13 weeks later is September 5th, with iOS 5 expected to release sometime in September.
So, if we're looking at 4 betas prior to release, and using the first week of September as a "ballpark figure", you're looking at just over 3 weeks between betas.
So, unless the next beta appears in the middle of week commencing June 27th, I've just rabbled on a complete load of nonsense, lol.
In general they take 4 betas. As far as I know, iOS4 had 5 as there was a problem with the GM so they had released another GM before final. Am I right or was I just dreaming?
That was iOS 4.2 that had 2 gm builds. Thing is, after the 4th beta it could be near a month before it comes out. Beta schedule are fairly regular but beta to GM is not.
