Download iOS 5 Gold Master for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch, Final Build to Be Released October 12th

If you have been closely following the news regarding Apple's mobile operating system, the iOS, then you should be aware that we are currently under the pre-release seeds of the iOS 5. But now as the "Let's Talk iPhone" concluded, the Cupertino company has finally released the Gold Master candidate of the iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

iOS-5 Logo
It took seven pre-release builds of the iOS 5 and now it seems that Apple is finally done with polishing its much awaited update to the iOS. For the uninitiated, Gold Master is the designation that's given to a hardware or software that is most likely going to be similar to the final commercial version and also it is the build that will be subjected to mass production. In case major issues or bugs are found, then the company will be releasing yet another GM candidate. But otherwise, the iOS 5 Gold Master Candidate that we are seeing now is going to be largely similar to the final, commercial build which will be releasing on the 12th of October.

Yes folks, it seems that in just a matter of a week, the rest of the iOS user population will be able to get their eager hands on Apple's latest mobile operating software. But for now, you know the drill. Much like previous beta builds of the iOS 5, the Gold Master candidate is only available to those who have a developers account. In the most likelihood, copies of the iOS 5 GM candidate will end up on popular file sharing websites. But if you want to download them the legal way, all you have to do is enroll for an account over at Apple's iOS Dev Center. The process is quite painless and there are no high standard requirements since all you have to do is pay the annual fee of $99. Definitely a worthy investment to budding iOS developers and enthusiasts alike.
iOS 5 Features
Keep in mind that in order to sync your devices using iTunes, you will need to download the latest corresponding beta software which is the iTunes 10.5 Beta 9.

So mark your calendars folks, just a week more to go and you can finally try out the latest numbered version of the iOS. Over the past months after it was first announced in June, iOS 5 has already been shaping to be the best version of the iOS mobile operating system. Thanks to the 200+ new features that Apple has managed to squeeze in into it. So what can you expect? Well of course there is the new non-intrusive and highly intuitive mobile notifications system, the Notifications Center. It is also hard to ignore the new mobile messaging just for the iOS, the iMessage. Twitter fans are also in for a treat as the micro-messaging service comes baked right into the iOS 5. And expect a lot more goodies to come with the iOS 5. More than 100,000 registered developers have tested out this new mobile OS and feedbacks are mostly positive, so one can say that iOS fans are really in for some good stuff.

Remember folks, the public release date of the iOS 5 is October 12th. And as usual, the update will be free of charge.

      Nope. Public releases don’t have a beta timer.

    Hey, i have a new bootrom iPhone 3GS, i updated it to the iPad baseband because i needed it unlocked.

    and then i gave it to my friend and he doesn’t need the phone unlocked, so i was wondering whats the best way to update it to iOS 5,

    it doesn’t matter if the phone can be unlocked anymore, is there a way to downgrade the baseband?

      Not possible as the update to the iPad BB was permanent. So even if you update to iOS 5, you will still not be able to unlock / use it as a locked iP3GS. Staying on the iPadBB is your only choice.

    Bro,

    I’ve a factory carrier unlocked and further jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 on my iPhone 4. Obviously I am looking forward to iOS 5. But am worried I will lose the jailbroken state if I upgrade on Oct 12. What should I do? Many thanks.

      All you can do right now is to wait for a jailbreak to become public for the iOS 5 & then update to the same. You will definitely loose your JB if you update your iP4 to iOS 5.

      You will need to reflash your BB with the 06.15.00 (iPad BB) again. Use Redsn0w.

      Ultrasn0w doesn’t support a 06.15.00 BB unlock on iOS 5 just yet. So pretty much all you can do right now is to downgrade back to 4.x.x iOS version.

      Only if your on the old bootrom. For others its still a tethered JB. Also, iOS 5 does have issues in unlocking the 06.15.00 BB & also Ultrasn0w isn’t updated for the iOS 5 itself. So you might want to hold off the idea to update right now.
