Apple has opened the floodgates for developers and released the iOS 5 Gold Master version in the Dev Portal. Following the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event where Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S, iOS 5 has reached its final beta stage before its release on October 12th. 

If you’re on the last iOS 5 beta, the GM update should now be available as an over-the-air update in Settings can only be installed after a restore in iTunes. You must be a registered developer to legally download and install the iOS 5 beta.

iOS 5 will bring over 200 new features to iOS device users when it is made publicly available next week.
