Why are people asking about Windows? This is for iOS developers. You can't develop for iOS without XCode which is Mac only.

Yeap. I can understand their stance on betas, but a GM SHOULD be 100% safe and ready for the masses. Hope the devs spend their time updating their apps rather than lecturing the countless hoards that are looking for a DL link.:cool:

OK, so no OTA to go from iOS7 beta to iOS7 GM. But if I restore via iTUnes to the iOS7 GM, will I be able to get all the OTA updates post iOS7 GM? Or do I have to re-restore to the iOS7 official release version to get OTA updates after that?

TIA.


The GM *is* the release version. ;-)
