Apple Highlights Upcoming iPad Features

Apple announced during its iPod and music-related media event on Wednesday that iOS 4.2 with new features for the iPad would be available in November. Now Apple has a Web page dedicated to showing off exactly what iPad owners can expect when they finally get their hands on the update.

iOS 4.2 will bring the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in sync. Currently, the iPhone and iPod touch support multitasking and app folders, but the iPad doesn’t.

The iOS 4.2 update will also include wireless printing support, the ability to wirelessly stream content to AirPlay-compatible devices such as the new Apple TV, unified inbox support in Mail, Game Center, and more.

iOS 4.2 will be available as a free update for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in November.
