Apple may release iOS 7 gold master to partners September 5th
We're less than one month from the expected announcement of the iPhone 5S which will bring with it the official release of Apple's new iOS 7. Apple has kept on a pretty strict schedule with the iOS 7 beta releases, with a new version coming every two weeks. iOS 7 beta 5 came last week, and iOS 7 beta 6 is expected next week, and the new word is that beta 6 will be the last one before the software goes gold master (GM).
A new report says that iOS beta 6 will be released next week as planned, but that will be the last beta. BGR is saying that Apple is planning to release the iOS 7 GM to partners on September 5th, five days before the expected announcement of the iPhone 5S. Partners and Apple employees will get the iOS 7 GM and have just five days to test it before the announcement.
Assuming everything looks good and there are no major problems, Apple will then release iOS 7 GM to developers on September 10th after the event. Still no word on when the new iPhone and iOS 7 will be released to users though.
