    Definitely no need to upgrade, it's the same iOS releasing today. If you go and do a software update on your device when iOS 6 released it will tell you your software is up to date.

    The GM is the official release. This is what Foxconn is installing on new iPhones.

    Are you an iPad developer? Before the official release, only iPad developers had official permission to download the Gold Master iOS 6.

    iOS6 GM as been floating around the world wide web for over a week now, that is if you didn't know. 😃

    Yes, but that is the result of an unauthorized upload.

    Just because something is possible doesn't make it right. Too many people lose sight of that, sometimes.

    I agree with you mate but unfortunately with technology growing at such a rapid rate, there's no stopping people doing what they not supposed to do.
