    How soon do we normally see the new iOS update after the keynote?

    There are plenty of other threads about this. Typically, the GM release will be available sometime today. - on some occasions, it’s been made available during the keynote - but usually within an hour or so from the end. Also, the general release of the new iOS has historically been available 2 days prior to the new iPhone release. Since that is rumored to be 09/19, the GA release of iOS 8 should be 09/17.

    Probably just a few days before iPhone 6 goes on sale. At least this is the way Apple has done it in the past.

    Yeah we still have 8 days to wait, it should be released to consumers on Wednesday 9/17 at 1pm EST 10am PST.

    I do want it now tho, and can't wait!

    GM can be installed on any supported device WITHOUT UDID registration.
    I'm sure many people here will be installing the GM at 1800-tonight

    Forum rules don't allow us to talk about sources, but I don't think you'll have a problem finding it.

    So many apps are not supported yet or not working correctly. It's worth waiting just so everyone gets their apps updated...

    I’ve been running iOS 8 since beta 1. I have very few apps that don’t work with it. And the updates are coming, too.

    iOS 8 updates haven't started yet. Maybe some apps have fixed minor compatibility issues, but not full iOS 8 support yet.

    My point was simply that iOS 8 beta didn’t break many of my "go to" apps. And for those that did, the fixes will be here soon.

    it will be uploaded on many sites, all you would have to do is use Google after the keynote to get the correct IPSW for your device

    Is there a fear that Apple may track down anything unauthorized and disable the use on our iPhone if we pull an iOS 8 GM from somewhere, without getting it thru as a registered developer?

    Sure, but I have some apps that are simply not able to run under iOS 8 yet. I'm pretty sure the updates will come soon but there's absolutely no way I am going to install iOS 8 this evening. I always do a clean install for a new iOS version anyway. Upgrading is always a bad idea.

    No. It is the same build number as the one that will be released OTA to the general public next week. It is THE SAME version. They just give it out to developers a week early to make sure their apps are ready to go before the public gets their hands on it.

    Says you. I have not done a clean install since about 2011. When I get a new phone, it’s a "clean" as it gets. I always restore from backup and my devices work as well and a cleanly as yours. I guarantee it.

    And as I said, I have a few apps that don’t work well with iOS 8, but none of my "go to" apps, so I will take my chances.

    Of course, YMMV.

    If the iOS 8 software, yes. Of the apps, no. The only one that I use all the time that broke was Tweetbot - and the "break" was the inability to get to settings. Tapbots was able to fix the issue under the iOS 7 code set. This was about beta 3 or so.

    Otherwise, no show stoppers for me. But as I say, YMMV.

    Thank you for the info; with the new keyboard functionality, battery info, inter-app communication, etc. I just might have plenty of ambition to well get a GM and upgrade this week!

    I'm a registered developer and i can confirm that the GM is EXACTLY the same as the public release version (same file) and i have installed the GM on non registered devices (friends & family) ever since 2008 without ever having a problem
