Once the Public Release comes out, will we be able to update to it from the GM if its different? Or will we have to download the ipsw? How has it worked previously?
GM and public is almost always the same thing.
I already understand that. But my question is, can you update from GM to the Public Release IF they are different?
GM is what is loaded on all the devices that have already started shipping from the factory.Once the Public Release comes out, will we be able to update to it from the GM if its different? Or will we have to download the ipsw? How has it worked previously?

Would Apple leave all buyers of iPhone's without a method of updating to 7.0.x?
4.2.1 GM went to devs Nov 18.There has only been one or two times that the GM was NOT the same as the Public Release. The last time it happened was all the way back on 4.2 GM Seed having Problems with WIFI. A newer build was compiled and the General Public Release was Renamed 4.2.1 GM Seed to Avoid Confusion.
4.2.1 GM went to devs Nov 18.
Then went general availability on Nov 22.
So yes, GM was same as general availability. Nothing as changed. It was also an intermediate release with no new devices.
I detailed dates, and provided reference links to back it up on how us devs get it early.Ever since IOS 5, they have NOT givin it to us early.
Recently they have sometimes with held the GM Seed for an Entire Month before releasing it to the Public.You state that IOS 6 went GM on Sepember 12th even though that was just the date they finally gave the Build to us. The actual Date the Build was Compiled was August 11th or August 12th.
