    MacStories is reporting that they’ve heard from a source at AT&T that Apple will be releasing iOS 4.2 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, this Friday, November 12, at 10AM PST. MacStories has also learned that updates to iTunes and Mac OS X will be released tomorrow, Wednesday, November 10.

    MacStories adds that although many were expecting iOS 4.2 to be released today, it was actually supposed to be released last Tuesday, but the release had to be delayed when a bug was found at the eleventh hour that prevented the iPad from correctly displaying Japanese characters.

    So, it looks like iOS 4.2 is almost here, with over 100 new features on the way, including Multitasking, Folders, Game Center, and AirPrint and AirPlay, which enable you to wirelessly print, as well as stream music and video to your device. Watch this space!

      I hope so!

      On the other hand, do we really believe that Apple informs AT&T? Its not like there are OTA updates. I think when AT&T visits Apple, they have to make sure to bring correct change to buy their own coffee in the cantina vending machine while waiting for their visitor badge.

      I have been reading that the IOS 4.2 release might be pushed back due to Wi-Fi issues. I have the IOS 4.2 GM for about the last 3 weeks and I don't have any Wi-Fi issues. I can also print to shared printers because I have the Mac OS 10.6.5 beta insalled. I don't have any printing issues either. The rumors of issues surrounding shared printers must have to do with patents and not anything else. I don't intend to update to the just released Mac 10.6.5.

      Well this is getting ridiculous! The only reason I wasnt using the beta was because Netflix wasn't working, but I feel like this is close enough to final that everything should be working...and a lot of devs have been releasing 4.2 updates to apps. Got a bunch of updates in the app store yesterday.

      Doing the extremely long process of restoring to remove jailbreak before updating...........ugh!

      Out of curiosity, why are you removing the jailbreak before updating?

      Because I tried to just update and it locked my iPad in restore mode for 15 mins....once I disconnected it I had to restore...therefore you can't retain jailbreak while updating to 4.2
