    Hi,
    Im thinking about upgrading purely due to impatience. Ive read online that the GM is the final version, does this that if i install it i won't have any issues backing up to iCloud and continue using my iPhone as normal?

    Yes, you'll be fine. Same build as next week.

    Make sure to backup first, just in case something happens with the install.

    I installed the GM on all my devices as soon as it was available and have found no issues.

    Go ahead and give it a try. The nice thing about installing now is you can revert back to iOS 7 if you find something you don't like. Once the official version drops this becomes impossible.

    I'm back on 7.1.2 after using the GM for a couple of days due to battery life. It's insane how much of a difference there was on my 5s.

    Make sure apps you rely on work. For example 1password has a bug making Dropbox sync not work.
