No goldmaster for devs will be released.The full release will be a day or 2 before the new phone
i was wondering this same thing. didnt they release 5.0.1 right after last keynote speech for the new ipad?
a point update is different then a full update like this,
ios 6 will go GM tomorrow, ios 6 will be out a few days before the new iphone goes on sale
GM? not sure i know what that means. but i see your point about the point update vs full update. thanks for the info.
GM = Gold Master, it's basically the last non-production release of the OS (the production release is the same codebase, though sometimes there's a slight rev number change or tweak).
gotcha. of all my years on forums, never heard of that. apple thing?
Similar to 'RC' or Release Candidates that is sometimes termed by other software developers.
Chances are exactly that, the GM or near GM will be released to developers to polish and ensure that their Apps are ready, and then will be staggered a few days before the new iPhone comes out, so they aren't hammered anymore than they need to be before launch date. Apples servers are really strained during iOS/iPhone launches, at least since they started.
RC is not the same as GM.
GM is a carry over term from days of old when you would create the FINAL version for release and send it off to the publisher to be well produced and distributed. This happen to be usually gold colored. When a game back in the day went GM it was done. You were just waiting for copies to be printed. The digital version of set in stone. There was no Internet as you know it. If they messed up GM it ment expensive recalls.
RC might be the version they release if no issues are found. You are thinking RTM or release to manufacture.
