New Claim of iOS 4.2 Launch on November 24th as Revised iPad Build Surfaces
Rumored release dates for iOS 4.2 continue to fly fast and furious, with The Telegraph now reporting that the update is set to launch on November 24th, the day before Thanksgiving in the United States.
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.
