I saw a thread (linked below) in the jailbreak forum where a guy claims that he temporarily saw iOS 8.1.1 GM posted in the Dev Center. It isn't there anymore but did anyone else see this? If not, when can we expect the GM or beta 2? Theories?

Xcode 6.1.1 went GM today, which is a great indicator that iOS 8.1.1 GM and/or release is imminent. I would expect it soon.

By soon you mean...?

Well by no means definite, but I am not sure I remember a public release or GM release of an iOS version to lag more than a week behind the Xcode GM.

That said, there typically aren't betas or GMs for x.x.1 releases.

I would bet on within a week.

A "source" isn't needed. Apple stopped signing for beta 1, it's coming next week.
Pretty sure they started signing it again a day or so later. Not sure that's much of an indicator of anything. Even the supposed more likely rumor from an actual Apple employee that got some information about it from training and shared it as inside information saying that it will be coming this week, didn't really seem to work out (at least not so far, and there's not much time left for it to happen).

8.1.1 is certainly coming, and it's probably more likely that it will happen sooner than later, but no one really knows when for sure (aside from Apple and perhaps some partners who aren't really supposed to share things publicly).

Yep, analysts, weathermen, and lawyers. All get paid to guess and/or lie.

Especially lawyers :mad:

What began as an noble endeavor to assure that the accused got a fair/legal trial has morphed into too many lawyers knowingly feeding lies to the judge/jury to get their client exonerated.

Sadly as "officers of the court" they are among the worst offenders in the courtroom.

Damn, the window is closing in on me selling my ipad 3, buying the Air2 and jailbreaking:eek:

I have a potential customer coming to check out my ipad on Monday. If I get the sale from that I'll buy the Air2 straight away.
