iOS 4.2.1 GM Update: iPhone and iPad Release Yesterday

So now there is a gold master 4.2.1 that has gone to the developer, isn’t that a newer iOS that the 4.2 which Apple promised would be released in November from back in September? Yesterday there were a couple of issue where the software update server couldn’t be reached which prompted everyone to think that the iOS 4.2 was on its way, this didn’t happen… We are still waiting and the clock is ticking on Apple, come on Apple, you have 11 days left to deliver!

There have been various theories and reasons behind why the new version of iOS has taken so long to get to us, one of them being that there are issues around the WiFi connectivity from the first golden master released.

The only thing that I can think of as to why it isn’t here yet is that perhaps when the gold master was passed back to the developers, the noticed something that wasn’t quite right or maybe the rumours are true and there are WiFi connectivity problems with the new iOS. Who knows…? To read more about the iOS 4.2.1 head over to AppleInsider.com.

Is Apple already preparing another update for after the iOS 4.2? Only time will tell.
