    I assume that the GM will not be released Wednesday, but the developer version. I haven't downloaded the Public Beta and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to do so now or wait.

    Any theories on GM release date?

    GM will likely be available later in the day after the keynote. It will likely be available to developers only as is usually the case. The final public release will likely be within about a couple of weeks from that point as has been the case in the past.

    Thanks.

    So I guess that means if I want iOS 10 this week, I'll have to run the beta.

    Chances are developers get the GM on wednesday, then public release 7 or 14 days later. It'll be out by the 23rd 100%.

    So if I have the public beta right now will I get the GM OTA at some point or do I need to downgrade to 9.3.5 and delete the public beta profile first?

    No need to downgrade. The GM OTA will apply just fine over the public beta. Although, some people prefer to wipe their phones and install the update fresh.

    It's a good bet the iPhone 7 will release on the 16th, so iOS 10 should be out sometime before then

    Not necessarily. Once the develops get the GM, you can download it from the internet and side load it to your device. Once you see that its been released to developers, just google iOS 10 GM ipsw and I am sure you will find lots of sites that will offer the download.

    The only downside is is that you must restore your device and do a clean install. If you wait for apple to push it over the air, you may do the update while keeping your data.

    This is a little OT but this has been the smoothest iOS beta ever. And I've been there from iPhone OS 3 betas :)

    You'll have to register for the beta program (profile files are on other subs) but the version released tomorrow is most likely the GM.

    I've ran betas before. I just wasn't sure if I wanted to this time on the phone. My MBP is on beta now though.

    It's not really a beta at the point when GM is released - but if you do register your device to get the GM a couple weeks early, you'll also be prompted to install future beta versions. I'm not sure you can just delete the beta profile without having to reinstall.

    Anyone - if he or she installs the public ipsw as an iTunes upgrade when it's released then deletes the beta profile, would that put the phone back on a normal track without having to reinstall?

    As I said, I've ran betas before and unless something has changed, I think all you have to do is delete the beta profile. I chose to reinstall, so I'm not sure.

    I don't believe public beta testers get the GM that is released to developers.

    I was under the impression he was going to install a dev profile tomorrow. Did I get that wrong, OP?

    What? There are no "versions" of the GM build. On Wednesday the GM aka release candidate aka final build of iOS 10.0 will be seeded to developers-only, for purposes of compiling and submitting Apps to to Apple for review. All Public users (beta tester or not) will wait for the official release, probably Sept. 14th.

    2 points:
    • If you want to get the beta version of iOS 10 via the public beta program, I'd do it today or tomorrow morning at the latest. No guarantee that it will still be available to download once the GM goes live sometime tomorrow afternoon (Eastern time).
    • If you do this, and then immediately delete the beta profile, you'll be on the normal track, i.e, you won't get the betas for the 10.0.x and 10.x versions of iOS. You will get the final version of iOS 10 when it is released to the public in the next 14 days, because you would likely not be on the GM (as, in the past, that has not been released to the public beta testers; this year: who knows!)

    The iPhone typically goes on sale at retail on a Friday. Usually, it's 9 or 10 days after the Event. If that pattern were followed, public sale would be on 9/16.

    Last year if was 2 weeks after the pre-orders which was a change. I hope that they do release on the 9/16, but if they do follows last years pattern it will be Sept 23rd launch.

    September 16. And this is a good bet because following Apple trends the phone will go on pre-sale this Friday or Saturday and release the following Friday.
