  • iOS 7 Officially Released to the Public


    After the long wait, iOS 7 is officially out to the public. Users can upgrade their software OTA (Over the Air) or through iTunes.

    iOS 7 brings iOS devices a whole new look, as well as a number of new features, whcih we covered for you in depth at this link.

    If youíre jailbroken and donít want to lose your jailbreak, we would suggest staying where you are for the time being. The evad3rs are confident that they will have a jailbreak for iOS 7 in the future, but theyíre not so sure when. So it could be a while.

    For those that already updated, and are missing their jailbreaks, iOS hacker ih8sn0w just posted a blog post adding validity to the iOS 6.1.4 and iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreaks that were teased on video last night. You should downgrade as soon as you can while the downgrade window is still open.

      Not if Apple stops signing anything below iOS 7.

      At 12:05p Pacific Time, I just now hooked up my iPad 3 and I'm currently trying to downgrade back to 6.1.3. It 'appears' as though its going to let me!

      Yea I am going to assume that the GM is the exact same thing as the public releases. You are correct the build number is the same.

      Can someone who was able to update to iOS 7 verify what the version number is?

      I downloaded the ipsw and updated my iPad and the build numbers for the GM and today's public release are the same. The links on redmondpie are direct links. The GM was only available on the developer portal.

      So I'm guessing the same issues are still present then... a bit of occasional screen jumpiness, "new" keyboard not showing throughout the OS, occasional crashing, etc. that were in the GM. Can anyone confirm?

      If you aren't seeing the new keyboard within an app it's because the app hasn't been updated for iOS 7, not a bug.

      Yes through iTunes but there is no need to

      I can confirm that the iPhone 5 (US+CA GSM, model A1428), iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4 (GSM), and the iPod touch 5th Generation GM builds have an identical SHA1 hashed value to today's public release, leading me to believe that the IPSWs are identical. Can't vouch for anything else, though...

      OTA update of iOS7 on my daughters iPhone has same version number as the Gold Master on my iPhone... If you are on GM, there is nothing to update as far as I can tell...

      I'd agree with you, if the apps in question weren't Safari and Calendar. That's why I said "throughout the OS".
