Apple has released its Gold Master seed of iOS 5 to registered developers. Listed as build 9a334, the GM build is likely the last to be seeded prior to the software’s official launch on October 12, and as such can be used to submit iOS 5 applications to the App Store for review. Notably, the iOS 5 GM seed is not available as an over-the-air software update, as has been the case with past iOS 5 beta releases. iOS 5 GM seed, and the accompanying SDK, is available for download now from the iOS Dev Center.
