    That doesn't answer my question. I know that the gm and the public release are likely to be the same build but the availability is different.

    No, you must update from the computer.

    I did clock the link. It's my bad for focusing on the GM part as opposed to the the any other version part.

    No! You can not OTA update from any beta to GM/public. You will need to use itunes. And if you choose to update via itunes as Opposed to doing a DFU restore via itunes then you will likly have problems.

    The beta game is not for lazy people.. FYI this question has already been awnserd at least 20 times.

    I went the update method (iPhone and iPad) and no problems at all.
    YMMV.

    Well your one of the lucky ones :)

    But there is a reason that apple does not support updating from beta to final (without using the alt update trick)... The reason being that buggy garbage can be left on your system.. It might effect you and it might not.. In rare cases it could even brick your phone (very unlikely)...

    The point is be Safe.. wear a condom.

    Me too. No problems, either on my iPhone 5 or iPad mini. iPad 4 I did an update from iOS 6 to 7.
