    GM NEVER shows up as an OTA update from a beta version, only restore through iTunes is possible, like it has always been.
    Since the GM is almost always the same as the final release, there is no udid check. However, it is illegal as a dev to distribute to non-devs and for non-devs to install it since it is copywriter software.

    That's how it's been in the past, but before spreading word about it, I like to double check nothing has changed, otherwise the non-tech savvy who won't wait will get confused.

    I'm curious too. I've been seeing that you have to have the beta version of iTunes in order to have iTunes recognize the phone after installing the GM.

    This is true, but you don't need it to actually update. If you do a shift/option+check for updates you won't lose anything and not being able to use current (Windows) version of iTunes isn't a deal-breaker.

    Yea I rarely use iTunes since I backup to the cloud. I'll give it a whirl, if I have to I'll just downgrade back to beta 6.

    Yes, you can option-update to iOS7 GM with iTunes. No need to restore. Whether or not you need the iTunes 11.1 beta2 to install it right now I am not too sure though. Your device does not have to be registered.

    Nope, don't need the iTunes beta. Nice and easy.

    It's snappy. Much faster, much smoother. Love the new tones. Love the new wallpapers. I'm still not a huge fan of the look of iOS 7, but it's grown on me a lot over these last few months. Battery life seems great, too. I'm on 80% after music at the gym for 2 hours, some web browsing and about 15 mins of texts. Just thought I'd give my opinions if the GM so far.

    Did you shift + click update ? Or did you restore ? I did "update". Whereas I can't connect to iTunes now, I still have everything from before. So it's no loss.
