    Apple has unveiled iOS 4.2 for the iPad at its media event today at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, California. According to AppleInsider, as expected the update will include several features from iOS 4, and the newly announced iOS 4.1 update due for iPhone next week, including folders and multitasking, as well as new features such as wireless printing support and something called AirPlay (previously known as AirTunes), that will enable the streaming of audio, video and photos over a Wi-Fi connection.

    Many will be excited by the new wireless printing feature, which Steve Jobs demonstrated, including the use of the new Print Center, which will be accessible via the multitasking bar which can be called up by tapping the Home button twice.

    iPad owners can look forward to the new update arriving in November for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    When Jobs showed the slide for ios 4.2 for the ipad it said at the bottom "on certain models only" or something like that. Anyone know whet models are excluded?

    yes but Steve said 4.2 will be available for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, so the model thing is probably for iPhone and iPod Touch

    Sorry, what I meant was----the iPad I buy in a few days will have 3.2.2. I understand that. The 4.2 is a download in November for all iPads, right?

    In other words, it is not simply being installed on brand new iPads in November, but can be downloaded to all older ones too like what mine will be next week..

    Do I understand that correctly? Yes I know, I'm an iPad noob. Thanks

    Yea, November sucks. We should definitely get.

    @Fardog, yes, that's probably the way it will be for a while. New shipments will carry the newest OS but everything already on store shelves and sitting in inventory will be a later version. Downloading an update is all that's needed ;)

    IOS 4.2 will be a software update which iTunes checks for automatically, so all iPods when sycn'ed will migrate to this software automatically, unless you've instructed iTunes to only allow manual updates of software versions. It won't be exclusive to ipad's built after November, bring it on!
