To be made available by the end of this month

The iOS 4.2 is reportedly going to be delayed. In all likelihood, the wait may last till the end of November. The cause of this delay is being attributed to a Wi-Fi bug that was discovered recently. The problem due to this is being widely experienced by several iPad users. This has been observed via the plethora of discussions about the said subject featuring on forums like Twitter, the official Apple discussion boards and the MacRumors forum. Several concerned users as well as developers have been debating about the situation wherein a number of iPad users testing the Gold Master build have reported connection drop out issues, wherein after establishing a connection to a local area network via Wi-Fi, users report the  connection getting aborted all by itself, merely after a few moments of use. While some users even complain of not being able to see the Safari browser along with the Wi-Fi issue.

Apple on the other hand has acknowledged the matter and is leaving no stone unturned to resolve the issue at the earliest.  The latest grapevine doing the rounds is that Apple may post a new Gold Master build soon that would sort the problem. As far as iPad users are concerned, they will have to administer a patient wait till at least Tuesday, for the software update to appear. AirPrint will be dropped from the Mac OS X 10.6.5 and the same is said to follow for the iOS 4.2 as well.
