In this video I talk about the new iOS 4.2 for iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone. While iPhone and iPod Touch users have been enjoying the many great features of 4.x, iPad users have been jealous onlookers.

This is the description on Apple's site about iOS 4.2.

The free iOS 4.2 Software Update brings all-new features to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.1 Just connect your device to your computer to download the update. It's free. It's easy. And it lets you do even more with the world's most advanced mobile operating system.

Updating is easy.
Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your Mac or PC and follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes.

iOS 4.2 brings multitasking from iPhone and iPod touch to iPad. So you can be more productive as you work, have more fun as you play, or do a little of both. Everything happens smoothly and efficiently — without slowing down the performance of the foreground app or draining the battery unnecessarily.

Now your iPad has more room for more apps. Move apps into folders with drag-and-drop simplicity to declutter your Home screens and keep your apps organized for fast access to your favorites.

AirPrint makes it simple to print email, photos, web pages, and documents right from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. A few taps is all it takes to go from viewing it onscreen to holding a printed copy. There's no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect.

AirPlay lets you stream digital media wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your Apple TV and AirPlay-enabled speakers. So you can watch movies and photos on your widescreen TV and play music through the best speakers in the house.

Find My iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch — the MobileMe feature that helps you locate your missing device and protect its data — is now free on any iPhone 4, iPad, or fourth-generation iPod touch running iOS 4.2.3 Once you set it up, you can find your lost device on a map, display a message on its screen, remotely set a passcode lock, and initiate a remote wipe to delete your data. And if you eventually find your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can restore everything from your last backup.

Be more social with your gaming. Find friends or use auto-match to play multiplayer games against new opponents. Track achievements and compare high scores.4
