Apple iPad Updated Likely To Be Next Week

Rumors have been circulating that the new iOS 4.2 software update for the iPhone and the iPad would be available today, but now new rumors suggest that the release has been delayed because of Wi-Fi issues. The new rumor is that the update will be available on Tuesday Nov. 16th.

Apple Insider has more: “The Friday launch was rumored earlier this week, in a report that also said that Mac OS X 10.6.5 and iTunes 10.1 would arrive on Wednesday. That turned out to be half true, as Apple released its latest update to the Snow Leopard operating system, but did not issue an update for iTunes.”

The new iOS 4.2 operating system will include the ability to multitask on the iPad, and it will introduce AirPlay, which brings the ability to stream movies using a mobile device.
