iOS 4.2 is coming in November for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Touted to be “the world’s most advance mobile operating system,” the launch of iOS 4.2 is being eagerly anticipated by iPad owners, in particular, as the company promises they “will get to enjoy 100+ new features and innovations — including multitasking, folders, printing, and more”. Meanwhile, Apple is feverishly releasing betas of iOS 4.2 for developers to test.
