    Well to be accurate, my brother is the iOS developer and I am sorta in it just to test my own apps on my own devices (have UDIDs and developer profiles and everything) to save myself money until I have to pay for it later.

    Anyway to get iTunes 11.1 without having to download it off of the Developer site or am I outta luck until General Release?

    If you need iTunes 11.1 beta 2, then I guess you are out of luck.

    Yes.

    But you don't need 11.1 if you are just doing an update.

    I have a MacBook Pro retina. Can I get iTunes 11.1 for free on there without having to get on the Dev center?

    Yes you do. It requires you to do it before it will update to GM.

    I guess you should wait until your brother can get you iTunes 11.1

    You don't need it to do the update. You will need it afterward to connect the phone with iOS 7 GM to iTunes as it won't recognize it unless you have 11.1.

    You can but not OTA. You will need to download the iOS 7 GM .IPSW and shift-update using iTunes.

    I have no idea. I'm guessing so. They will probably release it the same day.

    I'm stuck... it won't let me get passed Connected to iTunes. I can't do anything!

    ----------

    Okay nevermind. I have it, but it won't let me use my back up from iTunes..

    So what do I do now? When iTunes 11.1 becomes officially available can I just install that and then use my iTunes back up?

    AFAIK you cannot restore from a backup without using iTunes 11.1 beta.

    More than likely.

    Or search Google and you will find it.

    My backup is on Windows, not Mac, so that won't work for me.

    Because at this point, only developers are supposed to be updating.
