As most of you are probably aware, Apple has seemingly delayed the release of their iOS 4.2 update due to a last minute WiFi connection bug on the iPad. Considering that we all thought it would land on Friday – are you disappointed with the situation?
The good news is, Apple has already released an updated GM build of iOS 4.2 fixing the WiFi problem, meaning that iOS 4.2 is almost certain to release sometime next week. The iOS 4.2 update will add various new functionality to the iPhone and iPod Touch, but the update is more inclined for iPad users, with added features such as Airplay and Airprint.
It’s a shame that Apple didn’t fix up this bug sooner, but at least they have identified and removed the problem already. We still don’t have a solid release date for the update, but reports are suggesting that Tuesday 16th November is the magic date.
What are your thoughts on the iOS 4.2 situation? Are you disappointed that it didn’t come out on Friday?
