You don't. Either pay the $99 now or wait like all the other non-devs.


OMG It's the geek police, quick run or they'll arrest you for downloading a free bit of software a week early!!:eek::eek:

Confirmed: iOS 6 GM cannot be downloaded via OTA, you need to manually update: https://twitter.com/*****/statuses/245982296195350528


For anyone wondering, I just installed iOS6 GM on a device not registered to my dev account, it works fine.

I think it's pretty ridiculous that they support iPhone 3GS, but not the original iPad. They were still selling the original iPad about a year and a half ago. They still have original iPads that under warranty.

I guess when you buy an Apple product now, you can expect to be dumped from software support before your device is even old?


How can you acknowledge Apple's support for the iPhone 3GS,
yet claim they don't support old devices in the same post?
Rather than being disappointed that they don't support both, you should be impressed that they support one.
If these were Android devices we would be lucky to get updates for the iPhone 4S.

If an OS update not appearing on a device means "time for the landfill", then the landfills must be overflowing with Android devices. :D
