  • iOS 4 GM and iTunes 9.2 Beta Available For Download [Developers Only]


    During the WWDC Keynote today, we were told "iOS 4 software will be available on June 21 as a free software update via iTunes 9.2 or later for iPhone and iPod touch customers". As you can imagine, the iOS 4 GM and the beta version of iTunes 9.2 is now available for developers through the Apple Developer portal.

    One can assume that the official release will coincide with the iOS 4 release June 21st.

    If your a developer, head over to Apple and download iOS 4GM and iTunes 9.2 now.

    Whats New in iTunes 9.2

    iTunes 9.2 comes with several new features and improvements, including:
    • Synce with iPhone 4 to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on-the-go
    • Sync and read books with iPhone or iPod touch with iPhone OS 4 and iBooks 1.1
    • Organize and sync PDF documents as books. Read PDFS with iBooks 1.1 on iPad and any iPhone or iPod touch with iPhone OS 4
    • Organize your apps on your iPhone OS 4 home screens into folders using iTunes
    • Fast back-ups while syncing an iPhone or iPod touch with iPhone OS 4
    • Performance improvements make scrolling much faster.
    Psst.. StealthBravo.. let me know when iOS 4 GM is up

      If I have my SHSH files, I'll be able to downgrade later on, right?

      why is it called goldmaster?

      Goldmaster usually means there will be no significant changes before release so deva can assume this is the final version as they are developing.


      My question is whether this is coming to the iPad. All the big sites seem to be assuming it does but I haven't seen any confirmation. You can't download a gold master version for iPad and we haven't seen any demos of it running on the iPad. Perhaps a more customized version is coming to the iPad or something.

      Wrong, Gold Master IS the final, there will be no more changes.

      The iPhone team developing iOS 4.0 was completely unaware of the team developing iPad OS 3.2 until the iPad keynote in January. Thus, 3.2 is forked from 3.1 and 4.0 was developed with no awareness of 3.2's existence.

      iOS 4.1 will be where these two OSes converge. The question is whether that will happen at the September iPod event or at an iPad event in January. (Perhaps setting the stage for iPad January, iPhone June, iPod September).

      That 326ppi screen will be killer on the next iPad, however.

      That really stinks about the iPad version, although there aren't really any improvements that the jailbreak community doesn't already have. However if updated iPad apps stop working on the iPad because of 4.0 that really would suck.

      Why is it people just don't pay attention or remember anything?! Steve Jobs said crystal clear when he announced the existence of 4.0 that it would be available for the iPhone in the "summer" and for the iPad in the the "fall". Nothing has changed.

      Would you say that it is safe to update to 4.0 and that a jailbreak such as Spirit will be updated? My dealbreaker right now is using Mywi with the iPad and going to 4.0 kills that right now. Any ideas or speculation?

      MyWi will not be updated in Cydia until after the public release of iOS4. A new jailbreak will be released by the Dev Team but they don't give release dates so no one can speculate for you.

      Just want to confirm that this works on my non-dev account iPhone 3G on iTunes 9.2 beta but if you're jailbroken, its definitely not worth it on a 3G.....pretty much none of the cool features are here. It is noticeably faster though!

      I need to get a paid dev account. I'm surprised that the public release of iOS4 is coming as long after the GM as it is. You would think "Gold Master" status would suggest its ummmm ready for people to start using! Though I do see how they are having it coincide with iPhone 4.....
