Apple Release iOS 4.2 “Gold Master” Available Today: iPad Benefits

Today great news has come through that will potentially help developers. It comes in a downloadable form of iOS 4.2 Gold Master. The new build will bring multitasking and UI features to all devices but particularly Apple’s iPad tablet will enjoy the benefits. As well as this news, we can report on the possibility of Apple making the way for iOS 4.2 apps to the App Store.

The Gold Master version in software terms means that it is now “Completed” and ready to use. According to Charlie Sorrel at Wired, tech giants Apple had already spoken of the iOS 4 reaching the iPad tablet in the month of November, so now it seems they have stayed true to their word. As well as new multitasking features and multitask-bar, you can expect new folders, AirPrint, AirPlay and Game Center.

You will be able to gain quick accessibility to volume and brightness controls, the new AirPlay button when pressed will give audio and video content the ability to stream to compatible devices such as the Airport Express or the new Apple TV. Not only will the iPad get the full advantages of this, but from today’s update, the iPhone and iPod Touch will share the same benefits.
