Apple today seeded the golden master (GM) version of iOS 10 to developers. The golden master represents the final version of iOS 10 that will be released to the public, and it comes after a beta testing period that saw Apple release eight iOS 10 betas.

The iOS 10 golden master is available as an over-the-air download to those who installed the first eight betas or the beta configuration profile and it's available for direct download via Apple's Developer Center. The iOS 10 golden master version is iOS 10.0.1.

iOS 10 is a major iOS update with a ton of new features and design tweaks, including a new Lock screen experience with 3D Touch-enabled notifications, a more easily accessible camera, a redesigned Control Center, and a new widgets screen. According to Apple, iOS 10 is the company's biggest iOS update ever released.


The Messages app in iOS 10 has been overhauled with features that include background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch, handwritten notes, Tapback replies, predictive emoji, and a dedicated App Store, and Photos has gained new facial and object recognition capabilities along with a Memories feature for rediscovering forgotten moments.

iOS 10 will be released to the public on Wednesday, September 13, three days ahead of the official launch date of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. For full details on iOS 10, make sure to check out our iOS 10 roundup.

Can anyone confirm whether or not the star rating system in the Music app (as opposed to the hearts) is still gone in iOS 10? I had read in a previous discussion that it's gone, but I've been hoping it would come back before GM / release. With tens of thousands of songs, many in playlists based partly or solely on how many stars they have, I really don't know if I will upgrade to iOS 10...
Just checked, seems the ability to star a song is still not there in iOS 10 GM...
