Apple iPad spotted running iOS 4.2 in online video

iPad caught with iOS 4.2 ahead of global rollout

A video of an Apple iPad running the upcoming iOS 4.2 operating system has emerged online as the new multitasking and Game Centre features get showcased ahead of the OS’s global rollout later this month.

Whilst the iPhone and iPod Touch have been on the receiving end of major operating system overhauls in recent months, Apple’s market leading tablet device has remained untouched and devoid of the key features that have appeased previously disgruntled users.

The new video, which appeared on YouTube, offers a comprehensive look at the upcoming OS and the features it is to bring to the iPad such as the coveted multitasking, which like its pocketable siblings will be accessible via a double-tap of the home button, and the Game Centre feature which was introduced in September alongside the latest generation of iPods.

Whilst an exact date of arrival has yet to be announced of iOS 4.2 on the iPad, Steve Jobs declared back at the iPod unveiling that the update would land in November bringing wireless printing to the tablet device, amongst a range of other features.
