[Tip] You can now download iOS 10 GM on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch



Those enrolled in the beta program have been able to enjoy all the new and cool features iOS 10 brings but even the wait for everyone else is about to come to an end. On September 13, iOS 10 will publicly launch.

Yet again, those who currently have iOS 10 beta installed can get the final version (or as close as possible) before everyone else. The iOS 10 Gold Master edition is technically the last beta update and will be identical to the public release unless there’s a critical error that needs fixing.

Even if this happens, you can get the fix via a future update so there’s really no harm if you like to download iOS 10 GM at this point – you were already a beta tester and the risks so close to the final version are as small as can be.

How to download iOS 10 GM (Gold Master) edition

If you’re already in the beta program getting the Gold Master edition is very easy. Just head over to Settings -> General -> Software update and you will be able to download iOS 10 GM as an OTA update.

It roughly takes 1.5-2 GB of space so make sure you have it available before starting the download process.

If you are not currently in the beta program you will need to join first. While you will have to take additional steps, the process is quite straightforward. Read our dedicated guide by clicking on the link below:
