iOS 4.2 now delayed until 24 November?

Further delays hit iPad-centric update to iOS.

iOS 4.2 had been expected to be sitting pretty on iPhones and iPads everywhere by now. But it seems the major upgrade to the mobile OS has been pushed back even further, with a 24 November release date being mooted.

The news comes from The Telegraph, which says it’s spoken to “a reliable source” about the matter. It was suggested last week that iOS 4.2 would be out by this Tuesday, having initially been slated to land on 8 November.

Apple says the upgrade is still on track, having always maintained it would be unleashed in November, but never confirming a specific release date. Word is that Wi-Fi problems with the final build of iOS 4.2 have been affecting the iPad and tweaks are now being made to fix the issue.

As well as these niggles, the much-hyped AirPrint feature is set to arrive without Mac and PC support. Has Apple taken too long to release iOS 4.2? Or would you rather it took its time and got things spot on? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
