Today, shortly after Apple’s media event, the company issued iOS 6 GM (Gold Master) seed. The Gold Master edition is essentially the final version of iOS 6 that will be shipped preloaded on the iPhone 5. Apple will release the official version of iOS 6 to existing iOS device owners on September 19th.
While currently only available through Apple’s Developer portal, finding a download should be simple enough – just consult arguably the best resource on the internet: Google. Moreover, the new iOS 6 Gold Master firmware can be restored to via iTunes on devices that aren’t registered through a developer’s account.
iOS 6 is compatible with the iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, the new third-generation iPad, iPad 2 and the fourth-generation iPod Touch. Of course, iOS 6 is also intended for the iPhone 5 and the fifth-generation iPod touch and will ship installed on the two devices.
