iPhone iOS 4.2: Release Date and List of New Features

In a surprise turn of events, Apple CEO used tonight’s media event to not only introduce one forthcoming iPhone software update, but two. We have the first details on the upcoming iPhone iOS 4.2 update.

As reported from Trusted Reviews, iOS 4.1 will be landing on the iPhone and iPod Touch sometime next week, but Apple also teased iOS 4.2, which will be landing on the iPad, as well as the iPhone and iPod Touch in November.

You’ll be pleased to hear that iOS 4.2 will include all of the current features on the iPhone and iPod Touch, which means that the iPad will get multitasking support, a feature which is much requested by users.

New features of iOS 4.2 include AirPlay and Wireless Printing. Airplay is the new name for AirTunes, since the service will now support video, as well as music. Wireless Printing speaks for itself – it is a feature that was heavily requested, and now Apple has finally delivered.

Look out for a few report on iOS 4.2 soon. It will be available in November, although the exact date is unknown yet. Let us know your thoughts on the upcoming software update.
