 Now the speed is allowed to drop to the -S speed (slat retraction speed). If you wanted to retract the flaps for some reason you could do so safely because the speed is kept high enough. Now the speed is allowed to drop to the -S speed (slat retraction speed).

 When the glide slope diamond moves towards the center of the scale the autopilot will capture it because we armed the approach earlier. Now is a good time to select the gear down and help us decrease the speed further and get it to the -F, flap retraction speed in case of go-around. When the glide slope diamond moves towards the center of the scale the autopilot will capture it because we armed the approach earlier.
