    I'm on iOS 8 GM now. In the morning I'm going to restore back to iOS 7.1.2 so I can do a clean install for the public release of iOS 8. Can I backup iOS 8 before that then restore from it on the public release? And also can I just stay on ISO 8 GM and it'll automatically update when I connect to iTunes?

    So I can stay on IOS 8 GM to get the public release? It'll pop up on iTunes without going back to 7.1.2?

    This has been answered many many times.

    iOS 8 GM is the Public release. Apple may also release 8.0.1 in the coming days, which will be available for you OTA.

    I've been reading that there's features that's not in the GM that will be in the public release like the siri music feature and other ones.

    Do an update OTA tomorrow (if Apple does release a new GM). If there are problems later on, you can always download the .ipsw and do a clean install.

    They are all server side features that just need switching on.

    Don't do anything. Enjoy iOS 8, and you won't need to update until 8.0.1.
