Quite wrong. Almost every single GM build of iOS and OS X has been released to the public unchanged. Thats what GM is; the "golden master," or what every single retail disc would be pressed from in the old days of physical discs.
Oh please.

The GM is released on the Dev portal. I am more than aware what a GM is. I know it is the version, barring a major bug find, that the public get. The point is that the public get the public release, they never get the GM in name. While they are often one and the same, Devs get the file designated GM before it goes public.

Go "educate" someone else. My God.

I can't wait for 6.1 to be released and then 10 minutes later people take to the boards saying it's stale and boring and that they want iOS 7. It's almost like some people expect point updates to be major overhauls.

Apple delaying releasing 6.1 because the jailbreak will be released immediately after.

Hurry up Apple, I want my 5 icon dock and SBSettings back!
