THE CAPPUCCINO COMPANY, Apple is delaying its IOS 4.2 mobile OS update because of WiFi problems on the Ipad.
The Apple following online press had the release date for IOS 4.2 pinned down for November 12, following the updates to Mac OS X 10.6.5 and ITunes 10.1, which were supposed to come out this Wednesday. However, Apple released only Mac OS X 10.6.5 and has held back the IOS 4.2 upgrade.
Just last week fanbios were tripping the light fandango because Apple was saying that it would roll out IOS 4.2 this month. The IOS Dev Center was geared up to accept apps submissions and Apple released an IOS 4.2 beta build 8C134 for its mobile Ithings.
According to sources that spoke to Macstories, the Ipad was having WiFi connection problems on the current build. Apparently, the Ipad keeps kicking itself off the connection despite being connected to the local network. The bug has been reported on Apple's discussion boards by developers and users along with estimates that it should take another week to sort out.
Since when have WiFi connection issues stopped Apple from rolling out mobile kit for its fans? The company even admitted back in April that a decent WiFi connection wasn't exactly the Ipad's killer feature. In fact, Apple even confessed that in a support bulletin but it still went ahead and released it.
But perhaps after all the flack it's taken over dropped calls on the Iphone 4, it is being a little more cautious now about releasing a defective IOS 4.2 into the hands of its users. µ
