iOS 4.2 Release Update: Download Today Possible

We know just how many of you are waiting for news of the release of Apple’s iOS 4.2 and recently posted about its delay and the release of the latest golden master for developers’ iOS 4.2.1. However the news today is looking slightly brighter as reports have started to come out that it may in fact be released later today.

Gareth Beavis over on Tech Radar reports that the operating system update for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is about to be unveiled according to sources. We have to say that Tech Radar is usually pretty reliable on this type of news so we are giving some credence to this speculation. Apparently Apple usually releases updates at approximately 1:00 pm ET so if you’re in the U.K. that will be later this evening.

This new OS will primarily add a swathe of new features for the iPad such as multi-tasking, folder management, Game Center and more. We’ll be closely monitoring the situation and will let you know when we see it has been released so check back with us, or maybe you could let us know if you spot it first!
