Yesterday’s rumors that Apple is delaying the public release of iOS 4.2 seem to have been confirmed today, as a second gold master build of the firmware has been released for the iPad.
The second build should fix some Wi-Fi issues that were discovered in the first GM beta, and no other issues with the release have been reported. It’s great to see that this little bug will be squished before the iOS 4.2 goes public. Many users will recall that the iPad suffered from Wi-Fi issues shortly after the device’s release, and no one wants a repeat of those.
So, although this news means we’re going to have to wait a little longer to get our hands on iOS 4.2, there is a good reason. Recent rumor has it that the update has now been delayed until November 24th, however, we’ll let you know as soon as it’s available to download through iTunes.
