This has been quite a day for Apple!
First, the iPad was named Oprah's #1 Favorite Thing Ever, and now a major update for the device is being released today!
Here are some of the new features included in Apple's iOS 4.2 update:
- multitasking support
- a unified inbox
- a Game Center
- AirPlay software, which will allow iPad content to be streamed wirelessly to Apple TV devices and supported printers
- Free access to "Find My iPad" feature
Here's what Apple CEO Steve Jobs had to say about the iPad update:
"iOS 4.2 makes the iPad a completely new product, just in time for the holiday season. Once again, the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to, but very few, if any, will ever be able to hit."
Pretty cool! We bet Oprah can hardly contain herself right now!
Are U excited for your iPad to become even cooler?
