A tipster has written in that developers have received a new build of Snow Leopard that will be the Gold Master - 10A435. Screenshots below:

I call fake, as the font seems slightly different on the "435" (in System Version) in the first picture to the rest of the text. Also, all developers would get a copy, not just one or two.

I hope it true, i've found a few little bugs in the current "GM" that i hope are fixed.

Anyone know how long it takes to go from Gold Master to being on Apple retail shelves? (3 weeks, 4 weeks?)

About as long as iPhone O.S 3.0 to go from GM to the public

I thought Leopard took about 2 weeks from going GM to being able to purchase retail disks.

That is correct.


2 weeks for Leopard.
Tiger was about 4 weeks.
The same with Panther.
About 3 weeks for Jaguar.


I still think 10A432 is GM and it would give Apple about 2 weeks to produce SL GM and get those out in time for August 28.

yea but iphone os requires no packaging or disks


Another thing that i would call those images fake is the build number has not been on the about mac screen for at least the last few builds if it was ever there...

Click on your 10.x and you will see it. :) Click it again to see your serial number.

This also works in iTunes in the iPhone summary page, if you click on the phone number it displays the IMEI. The ICCID can also be displayed.
