iOS 7 Gold Master now available, developers go get it!

As we might have suspected prior to todays iPhone event out in Cupertino, the Gold Master (GM) build of iOS 7 is now available for developers to download. This comes ahead of the public release of iOS 7 on September 18.

Registered iOS developers should head into the Apple Developer Center where you should find a full copy ready and waiting for you.

Update: No OTA, sorry folks. Little carried away with the typing. Developer center only.

Bastien Duterme1 says:

Me too please, download link mate? x)

kilcher says:

Go to the developer's center, you'll find it there.

Richard Devine says:

If you're a developer, you don't need the link.

MiracleMan says:

The Gold Master is available to paid iOS developers only. It will be available to general public Sept 18 if I remember the date correctly.

Richard Devine says:

This. If you're not a registered developer, in Apple's eyes you shouldn't have the iOS 7 beta.

If you're not a developer, you'll have to resort to getting the ipsw from the same place you got your first beta...

No OTA update, was hoping for some iPad news also.

bullonparade85#IM says:

So if I have the beta version will I be able to OTA update when it comes out on the 18th???

buci1er says:

don't believe so, i believe you'll have to do a restore when the final comes out.

bullonparade85#IM says:

I see... Will I lose my data and have to restore form iCloud or will it keep all my stuff like an update??? Thanks for the response.
