“iOS 4 was first offered for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G earlier this year,” Eric Zeman reports for InformationWeek. “The big new features for iOS 4 were the addition of folders, multitasking and a unified inbox for the email program. The iPad, however, wasn’t party to the iOS 4 update and has been stuck on iOS 3.2.2 for months without access to these features.”
“Last month, Apple finally made iOS 4.2 available to the iPad for the first time,” Zeman reports. “The update installs a bevy of new features above and beyond folders and multitasking for iPad users to get excited about.”
Zeman reports, “There’s no doubt that iOS 4.2 greatly improves the functionality of the iPad. The addition of folders, multitasking and refreshed email all go a long way toward making the iPad a more robust device. AirPlay, AirPrint, Find My iPad and the Game Center take the iPad to the next level, making it genuinely fun to use.”
