“Apple on Friday released a second gold master of iOS 4.2, its forthcoming software update, which may address Wi-Fi connectivity issues some have reported with the iPad,” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider.
“The new build, dubbed 8C134b, has replaced the previous gold master released to developers on Nov. 1,” Oliver reports. “Typically a gold master issued to developers is identical to the version that eventually becomes the final release.”
Oliver reports, “It is unknown what changes have been made in the second gold master, though it’s possible the latest version could be to address Wi-Fi issues that some users experienced with the pre-release build. Recent reports have claimed that Apple hoped to release iOS 4.2 sooner, but was forced to push back the launch to address issues with the software. However, Apple still remains on track for its promised launch window of November.”
