New Claim of iOS 4.2 Launch on November 24th as Revised iPad Build Surfaces
The iOS 4.2 software update had been expected today, but Apple has delayed it release until Nov 24, a reliable source has told the Telegraph.
Apple has refused to comment on the speculation, stating only that it had said the software update would be released in November.
But a source that works closely with Apple said that the company had shelved its original plan to release the software update today, and had instead pushed back the launch until later this month.
Apple had been rumored to be releasing iOS 4.2 today, but a pair of reports published late yesterday indicated that a public launch would not occur until at least next Tuesday. Rumors had pointed to issues with Wi-Fi connectivity on the iPad as reasons for pushing the public release back from Apple's initial internal plans, and the appearance of a new iPad build today could lend some credence to that claim.
