iOS 4.2 coming Friday with iTunes and Mac OS X updates, sans AirPrint? (update) -- Engadget
Bring it on! I for one can't wait for multitasking. It is the only thing that slightly irritates me about iPad. 10am US time is 6pm here in UK so we have to wait an extra 8 hours. Bring it on!!!
I hope it is what you want it to be. There aren't that many applications, yet, that really multitask, and the iPad has 1/2 the memory of the iPhone 4. I just hope that iOS is making the decisions that you want it to be making regarding what it keeps in memory and what it allows to take processor time.
When I was using one of the beta releases, I enjoyed it very much, but I have to say that I wasn't really doing a lot in the way of real multitasking.
"Multitasking" doesnt require ram.....it is a state save mode. I have used the beta and it works wonderfully. Everyone is so stuck on this desktop meaning of multitasking....they have nothing to do with eachother...you don't have 2 apps running side by side...you close one app and it saves a little state file to identify where you left off...thats why you can power down and come back to that app. The only thing that runs in the BG is 1 music player at a time. Again, not very memory intensive!!
You're 8 hours closer to 6 pm though. No extra waiting required!
By the way the US has four time zones (and Canada has six) so there is no such thing as "US time". (In fact I'm understating US time zones because I'm not counting Alaska and Hawaii, which have their own zones.)
We are 18 hours ahead of USA west coast depending on daylight savings. It's Friday 4 am now here.
So now it is 5AM. You will get the new OS before us...?
Go Apple! Imma miss my rotation toggle switch tough
Gone, but not forgotten!
yes....Apple went stupid on us and reassigned the switch to MUTE....that will be fixed very soon on my iPad.
Multitasking is not important at all but the folders are what I am looking forward to.
