iOS 11 GM download available now

iOS 11 GM is now available to download for all iOS 11 beta users, including those in the developer preview program and the iOS 11 public beta testing program. GM stands for Golden Master, and typically represents the final shipping version of a software release.


Users who are enrolled in the developer and public beta testing programs can find iOS 11 GM available to download now from the Settings app Software Update mechanism of iOS.

The download via over-the-air update is actually labeled as simply “iOS 11” and has no mention of the GM build, whereas the download from the Apple Developer Center labels it is the iOS 11 GM seed release.

iOS 11 includes many new features and changes for the iPhone and iPad system software, including improvements and refinements to Siri, Messages, Photos, and more. iOS 11 offers the most notable changes to iPad users, with enhanced multitasking capabilities, the Files app which is a file system of sorts that ties into iCloud Drive, and a redesigned Dock and app switching experience that is similar to how Mission Control works on the Mac. It’s certainly a compelling release for iPad users and well worth experiencing either by enrolling in the public beta or by installing the final build when it is released in a week.

In addition to iOS 11 GM for iPhone and iPad, watchOS 4 GM and tvOS 11 GM are also available for Apple Watch and Apple TV, respectively.

For those not enrolled in the beta programs, iOS 11 will be released to the wider public on September 19 as a free download for all iOS 11 compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models.

    I have used the 11 beta software since buying my 10.5″ iPad Pro. This morning the beta said to download another update. I did and it works fine. However, it is not the final 11.

    I have a 10.10.3 iPhoneSE that cannot update to 11 in iTunes as yet, so I am assuming that what I have is only another beta 11 update, and the finished 11 will come soon.

      Final release is coming sept 19th. What you just got is the GM which is only available to beta users. It is basically already the same as the final version that will be released on the 19th for everybody else.

    I’ve been using iOS11 since Beta and now GM, it works great on my 6s, fast and reliable.

    You can download iOS 11 GM build right now from Apple CDN servers as IPSW files. These are all pointing to apple.com but you want to save them as .ipsw files if you wish to use. Good luck, or wait for it to appear on your iPhone/iPad!
