Coming This November to iPad: iOS 4.2
Apple today announced that it would finally bring the iPad up to date with the iPhone 4. iOS 4.2 is due for release this November and with it comes features that iPad owners have been patiently waiting for since the introduction of iPhone 4.
This update includes new features such as the ability to print directly from your iPad. Now when you create something in iWork, you will be able to print it out. Using the “Print Center” icon, located in the multitasking bar, you will be able to access these new printing features.
Multitasking is a welcome improvement for the iPad that we will all see in November. Expect the same seamless integration between apps on your iPad that you now have on your iPhone 4. Creating folders, a feature I could not live without, will now be standard issue for the iPad as well.
Air Play is a new feature that was an unexpected surprise. With it you will be able to stream audio, video, and pictures over Wi-Fi to your Apple TV. Imagine going over to a friend’s house with Iron Man 2 on your iPad and streaming it to their Apple TV in their living room. Come November this will be reality.
iOS 4.2 is also coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch as well, but I’m sure iPad users will be glad to finally get to use all the cool new features iPhone 4 users have had for some time now.
