iOS 4.2 now available

Written by

Brings multitasking to the iPad

Apple has released iOS 4.2 for the iPhone and iPad and this 623MB update brings several new features to both platforms.

In an effort to make it somewhat less pointless, Apple has added multitasking support to the iPad, as well as folder support. In addition, the iPad now has more room for apps and it supports AirPrint and AirPlay. The iPhone got the FindMyPhone feature free of charge and did not undergo nearly as many changes as the iPad. Both platforms will stand to benefit from some other neat features incorporated in iOS 4.2.

Safari can now do text search on websites, Mail has been revamped to feature a unified inbox, the keyboard and dictionary now feature dozens of new layouts and languages and users will also be able to set distinct alerts for texts coming from various contacts.

All in all it seems like a worthwhile upgrade, especially for iPad users. [I doubt we have many of those left after Nick's rants. sub.ed.]

and now imagine, Peter, how many of iPad users would there be if Nick wrote this news,not you :P

The update is ok, still one big issue is that it requires apps to support multitasking in order this to work, Still, most of apps that can benefit from multitasking already support it since the iPhone iOS4 is out for some time

Can anyone confirm if this update speeds up the 3G and reduces the lag of 4.1?

It's supposed to... Wait a couple of days and see what other users are saying.

Apple really should have made major iOS releases optional and have the ability to rollback if need be. The one saving grace of iTunes is it's backup/restore of all apps/data feature, really wouldn't be hard for that to support multiple OS versions too rather than being forced to use the latest. The 3G is rather old in terms of mobile hardware nowadays.

iOS 4 on 3G is like trying to run Windows 95 on a 386 with 4MB of RAM - possible but not very practical for anything save single task workstations.

One more thing.

Could the Fudz web techs please force full width comment quotes, the current system looks like ass when quoting small comments. Also, the comment "symbols left" counter seems to be wrong. It will often say you have 10 or more symbols left but return an error when you submit saying the comment is too long.
