The next firmware update for iOS will mean different things to each user, and some will be more desperate than others, especially iPad owners. Brands using Apple’s iAd service will benefit from the global expansion and extra iPad users when iOS 4.2 is released, which Apple hopes will help keep developers on side.
Some users have been clicking the “Check for Update” button in iTunes for a bug fix, which affected some users who use their iPhone alarm often, and was thanks to the daylight savings time change. Other users — myself included — have the check for update addiction, clicking several times a day wanting to see a different image than the one below (iPad users there, an iOS desperate for an update).
Those that were really desperate for the next iOS update have downloaded the Gold Master release and took an extra risk, rather than waiting for the download via iTunes, was this you? Twitter will help some find out the moment the update is live, thanks to the world tweeting faster than ever. Let us know in the comments, do you have the “Check for Update” addiction?
