The much awaited iOS 4.2 firmware update for iPad is available for download! The update brings multitasking and app folders to the iPad and the ability to print wirelessly (airprint) from all the devices. According to Steve Jobs,

iOS 4.2 makes the iPad a completely new product, just in time for the holiday season. Once again, the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to, but very few, if any, will ever be able to hit.

If you want to keep your jailbreak and unlock, you better not update to this latest firmware now until and unless official new jailbreak and unlock tools are available for download.

You would need to have iTunes 10.1 in order to upgrade to iOS 4.2. All you need to do is to connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with your computer via USB and start iTunes 10.1. You should now see a message as shown below.


Simply click on “Download and Install” button to get on to the new firmware.

    Ken, next time use larger fonts in your reply, it might have a better impact (not on the others IQ, but at least might get some attention). Obviously, Vic didn’t notice your reply.
