Today has been an absolutely huge day for the folks at Apple. Not only have we finally seen the company take the wraps off of the iPhone X, not to mention the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, new Apple TV and updated Apple Watch but there is now also the official release of the iOS 11 Golden Master to appreciate, too.
You may remember that someone inside Apple leaked the GM a few days ago, but this release is all official and available as an over-the-air update for those who are part of the beta program.
The leak of the iOS 11 GM gave us so many new tidbits of information regarding the iPhone X that it must surely go down as the biggest treasure trove of information ever to find its way out of Apple unofficially. It effectively ruined the launch of the iPhone X to the point that there were no major surprises as to the way it looks or how it will behave when we get our hands on it, and it is surely a move that will not be repeated any time soon.
With that out of the way and the iPhone X now all official like, it’s back to business for Apple and the release of iOS 11’s Golden Master is an important step ahead of the software’s release.
As always, Apple has made the software’s changelog available and there is plenty to go at here. The number of changes that have gone into getting iOS 11 ready is a large one, and this changelog certainly reflects that. Apple will still have time to correct any issues that arise following the release of this GM version, but with iOS 11 due to arrive for all users in a matter of days, the window of opportunity continues to narrow. In the meantime, if you are a developer, we heartily suggest reading the changelog for the GM and making sure your apps behave as expected.
Nobody wants any surprises come launch day!
