ios 4.2 for ipad Update: iOS 4.2 is now available for iPad! You can download iOS 4.2 for iPad directly from iTunes.

Apple had announced that iOS 4.2 for the iPad would be available in November when it is also released for iPhone and iPod touch. This is in line with previous rumors suggesting iOS 4.2 would unify all the versions of iOS across the i-device product lineup. This also fits into Apple saying that iOS 4 for iPad would be available in the fall.

iOS 4.2 features for iPad

iOS 4.2 will bring all the existing features of iOS 4.1 to the iPad plus new features that are exclusive to iOS 4.2:

  • Multitasking
  • Folders
  • AirPlay wireless music, movie, and photo streaming
  • Printing support over wireless networks
  • Game Center for multiplayer and social gaming
  • Unified and improved Mail inbox
  • Search text within Safari
  • Enhanced enterprise support
  • Accessibility enhancements
  • Keyboard and dictionary enhancements

Of course the most anticipated features are multitasking and folders, but some of the other additions look to be great as well. Airplay looks promising, which will allow you to stream music and video to and from the iPad over WiFi, and Print center, will allow you to wirelessly print and manage documents from the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The total new features and improvements count over 100, which will make the iPad function almost as if it’s a new device.
