It seems that Apple iPad won most of iOS 4.2. “IOS 4.2 iPad turns into a completely new product, this is time for the holidays,” said Steve Jobs. Apple CEO continued: “Once again, iPad with iOS 4.2 will set the standard to which other tablets will be going, but very few will reach, if anyone ever succeeds. One of the new features is the ability to rent a television program on iTunes for the application period of 48 hours after you start watching. (You have 30 days to start watching).
To download the new iOS 4.2, sync your device with iTunes 10.1. The software works with Apple iPad, Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 and the second and third generation Apple iPod Touch.
