    Since I am unable to go from the last Beta version to the newest with AirPlay and AirPrint, should I just factory restore and then upgrade and then back it up again with all of my apps?

    No you can install it in exactly the same manner you installed the beta. Go to one of the many download links to the final release, download it, and on windows shift click update and on mac opt click update, select the restore file and you will be up to date.

    As near as I can tell, you can only "make" folders by stacking two apps. What you can't do is "make" an empty folder that you can then put things into. I tried making a "folder" by stacking two apps and that worked. I then removed one of the apps and the folder was removed and the two apps were out in the open. I guess you cannot trick Mother Apple, or Steve Jobs for that matter. LOL:D
    If anyone has figured out how to make an empty folder [JBing you iPad my let you, I don't know] I hope they post the method.

    Mel, why couldnt you stack to apps, maybe 2 you don't use very often. Name the folder EMPTY (for now) drag one app out and just leave the other one in there temporarily until you decide what you want to put in it?? A temp fix, but it creates a folder - called EMPTY. Just a thought..

    Why would you need an empty folder?

    For whatever reason, Apple decided that a folder must have at least two apps in it, so if the folder contains two apps and you remove one, the folder disappears and the remaining app is by itself.

    So far so good except not finding printers for new print function. Multitasking and combined email accounts big plusses.

    Over the air update

    New to Apple.

    Regarding this update, can someone provide a link or info
    on how I can update to 4.2 for my ipad?

    I do not have any other Apple products so I can not connect to
    download it.


    Thanks

    It could have been coincidental but the "download only" option took less than 10 minutes while the "download/upgrade" option stated that it would take 3-4 hours. I gave up after 3 tries and then tried the download only option. Everything was upgraded cleanly in about 20 minutes. (I have 46 GB free.)

    I also turned off Norton firewall & antivirus because that seems to speed up syncs. I'm an Apple-newbie so I learned this after 3 trials. Apple experts probably already knew all of this.
