    I have an original iPad Air and a Pro 9.7.

    I'm installing iOS 10 on the Air to try out. If there aren't any problems that might have been missed during the beta testing, I'll do my Pro next.

    It's coming down REALLY slow right now. I imagine the servers are groaning away with the massive load :)

    Downloaded to my iPad Air, over the air (as has been done with every update starting way back with iPad 2), with no problems.
    Did a reboot. Everything seems to be working OK.
    Next is exploration of newbies.

    It took me about 35 minutes all together. (I did it over the air as well).

    Kind of a letdown... Not that different on the surface from 9.x.x There's a Home Icon now. But you need homekit accessories to use it. The Photos app can display photos you took by location on a map.

    SIRI seems a lot faster and smarter. I ran it through a bunch of questions. There is much less "here are some web pages" answers.

    Otherwise, I'm going to have to hunt for differences.......

    Interesting, many are having issues with OTA, freezing the device. Message is to install with itunes--most are having install time out. Since I was out when 1 AM EDT came I got message from friend that her ipad pro had frozen--Apple Care walked her thru iTune install which wasn't working for her--said Apple Care woman helped her see what was happening and give it time. Two of her devices are now 10.0.1--I'll wait a few days LOL

    The iOS 10 Gold Master release has the same build number (14A403) as the public release earlier today so that is, in effect, identical to the public release version. You won't be able to download the public release version because this Gold Master is the public release version in all but name.

    If you upgrade using iTunes on the computer using recover mode, it should allow you to download and update to the official/public version. You should backup the iPad before upgrading, just incase.

    Eventually you'll have to do it anyway, since public betas expire.

    Here's Apple's page on iOS betas, including a short section on how to move from the beta to the final, public release.

    The release version I got was 10.0.1.. I wonder if the release versions and beta versions numbered the same?

    The iOS 10.0.1 Gold Master has the same build number as the public release version, meaning that they're effectively identical.

    Yes ! It worked using the information on the twerppoet link above. With the pre-release version I could not post comments on the app store as pre-release comments are blocked by Apple. All now OK, and I have withdrawn from the Beta program. Thanks TP.
