    I'm sorry if this has already been explained/discussed in another thread (I did have a look around and didn't find anything).

    I had been registered as an apple developer for a long time... but I failed to learn the languages required to create a running app xD
    Nonetheless, I found out that Apple has been releasing Beta versions for their highly anticipate iOS4.2. I waited for the GM.
    Now that the GM is out... I was wondering wether it would expire?
    i.e. do GMs expire... isn't it just the betas that expire? xP

    I'm using GM and I am have NO problems with it on my iPad. Wifi is brilliant (even better than 3.2.2) and I love the new features :)

    If the GM expires I'm also assuming the public version of iOS4.2 would be out by then... :confused:

    Thank you in advance :)

    Can you imagine the fallout if the the "GM" version expired before iOS 4.2 went public? I just don't see it happening.

    Gee Marie... what a pal! You would owe me so much pineapple pizza (with lite sauce, of course!) if you did that to me!

    That would save me another 549MB download as my internet is limited to 3GB and I only get kind of 1.5GB download and rest is beyond my knowledge.

    Thanks

    No bud it doesnt but the Gold that was released a few weeks back does indeed suffer from a WIFI bug so make sure to download another GM called 4.2 8C134b

    Sorry pal,it is often not what it seems to be. I am in 21st century in everything else,but the internet,nah its that way here. To be precise, our country overpriced the internet and yet the best connection that you can get for the hightest price is a broadband with 256kbps :) The better ones like 512kbps requires you to be a government official or some multinational company guy in both subscribing and paying. So even if I want to,I can't move on to 21st century unless the government does something about it.

    And my internet isn't dialup though it is that,its just Internet sharing from my cellphone which gives me 3GB plan with max 21KB/s permonth for only 29.99USD+(Vat 15%)

    What a life I am having here,you can't even imagine :)

    Thank you for the responses :)
    I'm not suffering from any wifi problems from the first GM. And the 2nd GM doesn't want to install =/ (a firmware error)...
    Ah well... I'll just stick with the first GM ^^

    BTW...I just noticed that when I try to update my iPad using the iPad Update Server... an error message shows up saying that the server can't be contacted. Could this mean apple is uploading the public version of iOS4.2... I hope so :eek:
