iPad to Get iOS 4.2 This November

iPad owners: Are you feeling left out by all the iOS 4.1 love on the iPhone 4 and the new iPod Touch? Don’t worry, you’re being remembered. Unfortunately, you still won’t get multitasking till November.

The much anticipated release of iOS 4 for the iPad will come later this year as part of Apple’s iOS 4.2 upgrade. During Apple’s music event, Steve Jobs gave a brief preview of iOS 4.2, the iOS update that will finally bring the iPad up to speed. In November, the update will finally bring the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad up to the same iOS version, and it will also bring Game Center to the iPad.

The new iOS upgrade will include two new features:

  • Wireless Printing will now be included so you can print directly from the iPad to a wireless printer.
  • AirPlay – AirTunes has been renamed to AirPlay and will allow for wireless streaming of audio, video and photos over WiFi.

Current iPad owners will be able to get the iOS 4.2 upgrade for free beginning this November.
