While many iPad owners were hoping that today would finally be the day that iOS 4.2 would hit the market, it just didn’t happen, it simply doesn’t look like iOS 4.2 is going to drop today.
According to several news sites, a significant bug has been discovered in the iOS 4.2 GM that has prompted Apple to delay the final release. The bug apparently involves WiFi and causes the connection with the local network to drop every few minutes on both the iPad and iPhone 4.
The sites don’t seem to agree on the next supposed due date, MacStories is saying that this bug will end up delaying iOS 4.2 for as long as two weeks, according to 9to5Mac it wont take that long: they’re pegging Tuesday, November 16th as the new iOS 4.2 launch date, and finally MacRumors are saying it might be pushed back as far as November 24th, the day before Thanksgiving.
