    This just in! iOS 4.2.1 for iPad has finally officially been released. So head yourself over to iTunes and click that Refresh button.

    iOS 4.2.1 supports many long-awaited features including folders, multitasking, Gamecenter, AirPlay and printing.
    Update: And it includes FREE Find My iPhone (also for iPad)
    Update 2: it's still called 4.2 (not 4.2.1) and most people are reporting that it will go live at 10 AM Cupertino time.
    Update 3: No, it really is 4.2.1. Check in Settings.

    My ipad is hooked up now to iTunes, but it still states that it is up to date. Is there a actual refresh button?

    Mine says software is up to date, as well -- version 3.2.2

    Has anyone here been able to download 4.2.1 yet?

    There was a rumor about 10AM Cupertino time, but there is nothing in the press release. I also get 'you've got latest' when I click update, but there are lots of screen shots on the web showing people updating.

    I can only recommend spamming "Update" in iTunes.

    On the other hand, it is after close of business in Switzerland so I have probably a little more time on my hands than you.

    If anyone has been successful in downloading it, please post the direct link, so that we could download it without having to keep hitting the "Check for update" button

    Think I'll wait for tomorrow morning - the update server will be hammered tonight! I'm sure I can wait another 16 hours...

    The original post said, "Apple will begin the rollout by 10:00 am Pacific Time." Give it a couple hours.

    Somewhere in an office in Cupertino, some folks working at Apple are sitting at their desks, reading all of the Ipad forums and cackling with glee about the anxiety people are experiencing about having to wait until 10 am.

    I'd like to see a traffic report released ;) I can only imagine the traffic spike those servers are about to see!

    It is to be release at 10:00 PST, so that is about 50 minutes away. I suspect that it will get real busy, so I might wait. A few more hours is not going to kill me.
