Quote (via iEnlive):
Today, Apple finally released the Gold Master (ship to end users) version of iOS 4.2 to developers and have begun soliciting apps built for it, forshadowing a close date of releasing the final update early this month. Apple already has shown us iOS 4.2 for both iPhone and iPad back at their September event, which also had other announcements on 4.1.
Apple posted a message Monday inquirinig that developers should prepare their applications for iOS 4.2, and this sparks interest because of Apple notifiying to get ready for 4,2, as of submitting updates for iOS 4.1 (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad).
With the liberation of iOS 4.2, the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch will be receiving some great updates which Apple users of all kinds will enjoy. We have no word as to what changes or new features have been implemented into iOS 4.2 – hit us up if you find out after your quick experience.
Also of high importance, iOS 4.2 will also require iTunes 10.1 installed – the beta has been available for quite a bit now (for those wondering), and can be downloaded via the Developer Center on Apple’s side.
UPDATE: New features have been revealed and found in the new version of iOS (4.2)
-new AirPlay icon
-Multitasking bar [now with advanced brightness and volume controls]
-new Mobile Me login interface [allows you to log into MobileMe account settings using an Apple ID + offering a link to create a new/free Apple ID within the window]
