With the release of the greatly anticipated iOS 7 update less than a week away, Apple has released the Gold Master (GM) version of iOS 7 to developers. The GM version could be the last official pre-release version of an iOS release before the final arrives. Apple is reaching out to developers with its program to promote updates that ready their apps for iOS 7 and encourage them to take advantage of new API’s like AirDrop, which lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts etc, with a Share button.
The GM version of iOS 7 is the exact same version that will arrive to users shortly; it’s already shipping on all of the devices on their way towards the U.S. from its suppliers in Asia.
If you’re a developer, you can download the GM here, if you’re not, there are only 6 days until the release on Wednesday 18th September.
