Download iOS 7 GM 11A465 Firmware from Developer Center

The official download links of iOS 7 GM (gold master) ipsw just gone live on the Apple’s dev center. iOS 7 GM build 11A465. If you have a developer account, then you can directly download a complete ipsw firmware from here. Then restore the downloaded firmware through iTunes to install the GM version of iOS 7 onto their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

download ios 7 gold master

For those who are currently on iOS 7 beta 6, it won’t do any good to head over to the Software Update section of the on device. As with previous years the Gold Master seed of this firmware refresh will not be offered as an over-the-air (OTA) update for existing beta users. It will therefore be necessary to grab the firmware file directly from the Member Center method above in preparation for a custom iTunes install, or download a complete unofficial firmware from the download links we posted below, soon be updated. If you keep a non-developer, then I think You are now need this unofficial download link for upgrading iOS 7 GM.

The Gold Master is the final version of iOS 7, the public version will see come September 18 ahead of Apple’s new iPhone launches.

 How to install iOS 7 GM

If the device is in iOS 6.x, then make sure your device is on iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5) others on iOS 6.1.3, it is best to a clean new system. If you have already upgraded iOS 7 beta 6, and want to install GM now,  please click on Shift + “Check for Update” Button in iTunes to install the ipsw file. All your date will still be kept in new version, will not be erased.

Important: Hold down the Shift (Windows) or Alt/Option (Mac) key and hit the Check for Update button on iTunes.

 Some issues you might encountered

  • Please ensure that your device is iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5), iOS 6.1.3 (Other devices) before upgrading.
  • You’d better restore a new iOS 6.X firmware, to get a clean new system for the iOS 7 upgrading smoothly.
  • If you get an Error 3194 when using iTunes, then you probably need to modify the hosts file on your computer, to ensure iTunes can connect to Apple’s update server successfully.
  • If you frozen the Apple logo and progress bar screen, then you must installed many applications in the previous iOS 6, resulting iOS 7 update extremely slow, to fix that, you can only restore the device to iOS 6.1.4 from DFU mode, then try again.
  • If you get -1 Error When upgrading, try replacing another USB port or computer. If it still not works, enter to DFU, then restore back to iOS 6.x. This error may be due to the damaged baseband hardware.
  • If the iOS 7 Activation error occurred, fix it follow this guide we posted.
  • If iTunes prompts unknown error 6, follow this tutorial for fixing.
  • If you iTuns prompts an incompatible firmware, then you must download  wrong firmware, please check your device model to download a correct file, click here to learn how to download the correct firmware based device model.

    The file you are trying to download is no longer available.

    This could be due to the following reasons:

    The file has been removed because of a ToS/AUP violation.

    Invalid URL – the link you are trying to access does not exist

    The file has been deleted by the user.

      Because GM is still a beta version, Apple only allows us to sync using iTunes 11.1 beta equipment GM, lower version of iTunes will not recognize iOS 7 GM, so if you are a Mac user, please download iTunes 11.1 for Mac from the above link we posted.

    I was running iOS 7 Beta 6 and am not a developer. I was able to upgrade to iOS 7 GM in about 20 minutes by hitting alt-click (on my Mac) update. Not restore. From what I can tell, that seems to be working for some people but not others. It verified the GM installation at least three times with Apple. Best I can tell, the fact that I had iOS 7 Beta 6 made it think that I was a dev. Not sure. Either way, it worked for me without downgrading to 6.1.whatever.

    Don’t shif+click “Restore”. You’ll have to go through the whole process of putting all your data back onto the device. Shift+click the “Check for updates” button.

    What does he mean by “You’d better restore a new iOS 6.X firmware, to get a clean new system for the iOS 7 upgrading smoothly.”?

    • 65

      A Clean Install is always better than a update,
      So if you want your phone to run like new then start from scratch, and don’t just update/restore from where you are now.

  49. 66

    I just updated from iOS 7 beta 6 direct to iOS 7 GM, using the Shift + Update button, and selecting the ipsw, one step I took was to disable the internet on my pc whilst I updated and no issues with Apple activation, and not having to downgrade to 6.1.4

  50. 67

    so if I wanted to sync anything with my 11.05 version of itunes, I can’t? or is it only for restoring things?

  51. 69

    Takes a while on the 4S to install… so be patient. must use Restore button in iTunes only… its freezes on the Update button and then you will have to put it in recovery mode then restore to the last iOS 6 update and try again.

  55. 77

    Ok I’m on iOS 7 GM first I was on an ipad running iOS 6.1.3 with music and apps ! Then I downloaded iOS 7 GM and with iTunes 10 I clicked shift+ update mad now it works like a charm 🙂 and all my data didn’t erase

    Hola! Me pregunto lo siguiente: ¿al instalar el iOS 7 GM, cuando salga la versión para el público general el 18 de este mes, tengo nuevamente que devolverme a iOS 6.1.3 y actualizar, o si se podrá actualizar via OTA desde la versión GM? Gracias.
    PD: En cuanto al problema con el iTunes 11.1 para Windows, usé temporalmente “iTools 2013” para agregar música y fotos a mi iPad Mini :itssomething:

    Worked on my iPhone 4S without problems. Be warned that you WILL need iTunes 11.1 to sync your iPhone. There is a link to download iTunes 11.1 somewhere out there. I just synced with iCloud.

    • 140
      • 141

        Looks like the iTunes 11.1 beta was posted above. Download that and you’ll be able to sync your iPhone running iOS 7 GM. I was able to sync just fine with iTunes 11.1.

      Nope, it’s just required to restore from backup or sync with your iDevice running the GM, or at least that’s what i’ve heard so far.

    • 162

      Well, one website maxes out at 100kbps(datafile one) and the other one requires you to pay since the file is larger than 1GB…Those links are of no use to me! It says it would take 6 hours for the download to finish! D:

      I heard that the shift+click on the update button allows you to update to it. But if you restore to it, you cant restore from backup since it requires iTunes 11.1(which is only available for devs on Macs atm). Anyways, can someone confirm that the shift+click update thing works?

      Im not even gonna try restoring my iPod, im gonna try updating straight to iOS 7 GM. I already synced everything I need to my iPod anyways(And most people cant get iTunes 11.1 since it’s only available for Mac)

    Ok, what I dont get is, why isnt ANYONE uploading the Gold Master version to MEGA? All the other beta versions were immediately uploaded to MEGA, so why isnt anybody using MEGA this time? All the download links I found were maxed out at like 200-300kbps…

  126. 191

    The download site they use is from Russia…You have to sign up first or else the download speed gets reduced, and the max. speed i got here in the US was 300kbps…It says “1 hour” remaining though, which i guess is better than the 9 hours people were getting here! XD

  127. 192
  128. 193

    I press the download button but nothing happens what should I do ??? I tried on ie and chrome and both didn’t work
    unable to download for iphone 4s !!! :/

  129. 194

    You should be able to (shift+restore to gm version) Don’t know why he’s saying you need to downgrade to 6.1.4 if you already have ios7 beta 6…..

  130. 201
  131. 202
  132. 203

    Is it certain that you must downgrade if you have iOS 7 beta 6 in order to install GM properly? You can’t just hold shift and update?

    Dont worry, they’re still uploading all the firmware. With a file thats over 1GB in size, it can take a while. But the firmware’s surely gonna be available for download soon! ^.^ (But wait, I heard that you have to RESTORE to install the GM version? If thats the case, then i cant do it since im not a dev)

    • 230

      I am sure you can restore the ipsw file using the latest version of iTunes. But do you need a dev account to actually use it when installed? Normally you don’t have a dev account to use a GM copy.

      • 231

        Omg, if your right, then thats GREAT! I already went through so much trouble installing iOS 7 Beta without a dev account..Im gonna be so happy if it doesnt say “Activation Error” This time ^.^

        • 232

          Warning!!! You need iTunes 11.1 if you want to do ANYTHING with your phone and your computer, i.e. Restore from backup, transfer music, etc.
