Apple posts iOS 4.2 gold master

updated 07:30 pm EDT, Mon November 1, 2010

Public release imminent

Apple has finally seeded the iOS 4.2 gold master to developers, indicating the public release should arrive in the near future. Build 8C134 arrives just weeks after the company released the third beta, which brought new SMS tones but removed AirPlay support from the YouTube app.

iOS 4.2 will bring the iPad up to speed with the multitasking capabilities supported on the iPhone and iPod touch. All devices will gain support for Apple's AirPlay streaming audio standard, while the iPad's rotation lock button is expected to be switched to a mute control.

The update is promised to arrive this month, although the company has yet to announce a specific release date.

    gonna be veeeeeeeeery upset if Apple jacks my rotation lock switch.

    I can't tell you in words how insanely mad it makes me when the screen flips just becuase I farted too hard and dipped the corner of the iPad.
