“Two days ago we reported Mac OS X 10.6.5 and iTunes 10.1 were set to come out on Wednesday, with iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to follow on Friday Nov. 12th — tomorrow,” Federico Viticci reports for MacStories. “Mac OS X 10.6.5 indeed came out, without AirPrint functionality for shared printers as previously reported as well. iTunes 10.1 didn’t come out.”
“Basing on the information we got from a reliable source, it appears that iOS 4.2 has been delayed due to last-minute WiFi connection issues experienced by many users running the GM build on the iPad,” Viticci reports. “The bug has been reported to Apple, and they apparently decided to delay the release of iOS 4.2 to fix the bug.”
Viticci reports, “Apple may release a second GM build as early as tomorrow to deal with WiFi issues. This will delay the release for at least a week while it is tested, but may not get public release until the following week as it appears Apple will be testing it vigorously. iOS 4.2 should, however, come out before Thanksgiving.”
