iOS 5 beta 8 this Friday? GM seed September 23rd? Carrier approval by October 5th?


BGR reports that a source has told them that this Friday won’t bring us GM seed of iOS 5 like we originally thought but in Friday we will have iOS 5 beta 8. Now the only time there has been 8 betas for iOS software was with iOS 2 or iPhone os 2 as it was called back then. Now I think iOS 5 beta 7 is stable and they should skip beta 8 and just fork over the GM seed but that could be just me. Here is the statement from BGR.

After beta 8, Apple will introduce a Gold Master build on or around September 23rd as has been rumored. We believe that build is what will be loaded onto the already-assembled iPhone 5 hardware currently waiting for final software in China.

Now this means the rest of the world could see iOS 5 on October 5th. Also could we see the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5 September 23rd? Apple usually gives the GM seed around the announcement of a new iPhone so it would make sense. Or could we have to wait till October 5th to see the newest and greatest Apple has to offer? Only time will tell.
