Apple has released the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK Gold Master version not long after its release of Beta 5 version last week, finalizing the company's preparations for this Saturday's iPad release.

The Gold Master version, what Apple calls software it deems ready for public use, of the SDK is a significant milestone since it is the first release of the iPhone operating system to support the iPad. Developers will be able to compile and test iPad apps before the final app submission deadline of 5 p.m. PDT on March 31.

Last week, we wrote that we suspect Apple will offer a firmware update on the iPad's launch day, and we were right. You can download the 457MB firmware file directly from Apple's servers.

No other significant information about the update is currently available. If you discover something new, please leave a comment.
