Apple Releases iOS 4.2 Golden Master to Developers
Apple has released the Golden Master (GM) version of iOS 4.2 to developers this evening. The GM build is typically the final shipping build that will eventually reach customers. According to MacStories, AirPlay has returned as a feature to YouTube playback -- a feature that was inexplicably missing in the last developer release.
Apple originally detailed the upcoming features of iOS 4.2 back in September. The focus of the update will be to bring the iPad up to speed with other iOS 4.x features such as multitasking and folders, but it also introduces a few new features across all devices. New features include:
- Printing: Print mail, photos, web pages, and more directly to a printer on a wireless network.
- AirPlay: Wirelessly stream videos, music, and photos from iPad to the new Apple TV, and stream music to AirPlay speakers or receivers, including AirPort Express.
iOS 4.2 was expected to be released in November, and with the GM release, Apple appears to be on target.
