Following today’s announcements, Apple has released the golden master version of iOS 8. The last iOS 8 beta seed for developers was released on August 4th with the push of iOS 8 beta 5. 9to5Mac previously reported to expect iOS 8 beta 5 to be the final developer beta before today’s iOS 8 GM seed.

iOS 8 is scheduled to be released over-the-air next week on September 17th for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 7 with a list of new features including iCloud Drive; a new Health app; support for app extensions and third party keyboards; continuity features that bridge iPhone, iPad, and Mac; new Family Sharing functionality; and more. iOS 8 will support iPhone 4S and later, iPad 2/iPad mini and later, and iPod touch 5th generation.

The iOS 8 GM seed is available now via the iOS Developer Center. We’ll be digging in to the new seed and report on any changes in the new version. As always, email if you see anything interesting.
