The iOS 4.2 from Apple is a highly awaited version of the OS the company uses in its tablet PC the iPad, amongst other iDevices. The iOS 4.2 will provide fixes to many of the problems that the current iDevices from Apple are suffering, most importantly the Wi-Fi connectivity problem. And now, just two weeks after the first beta of the iOS 4.2 was out, Apple has released the second beta, also marking the release of the iTunes 10.1 Beta 1 alongside. This release brings multitasking to the iPad tablet in addition to wireless printing and home screen folders. However, a more significant achievement the second beta gets is in the form of greater stability as compared to the first beta.
Although we would soon want a stable final release to roll out soon from Apple, you can currently download the iOS 4.2 Beta 2 from the Apple developer site, pre-requisite being your registration as a developer. But then, iPad users need not wait long as by all accounts Apple promises to make the final version of the iOS 4.2 available by November 2010.
This is going to be a very important release, especially at the heels of arrival of a number of good tablets from formidable competitors like Samsung, Blackberry, HP and Toshiba etc.
