iOS 4.2.1 Software Update

by Volker Weber

The free iOS 4.2 Software Update brings all-new features to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Finally. If you have an iPad or iPhone 4, do update ASAP. The update fixes the buggy Bluetooth stack in the iPhone 4, and brings the iPad to where we all hoped it would be long ago

I also find the 3G/3GS faster than before with older 4.x versions.

How did you get your update ? Itunes says my current iphone version 4.1 is the actual one , that sucks. Needs to be on USA proxy ? does it depend on carrier ?

I have my iOS update through my developer account as a seed download. Your update should be available soon.

I am thinking that it is still early in California, and they want everyone awake in case of any "hiccups" in the process.

Same here in Italy. iOS 4.2.1 not available yet.

BTW Apple TV 4.1 update should be available as well, did you get that one?
It is needed to stream video to the Apple TV, isn't it?

I have the original AppleTV. Don't think there will be an update for that.

I have the new Apple TV2 and it works like a charm.
Can't see any technical reason for Airplay not being available on the older model.

I wish you good luck as AirPlay was indeed the missing link..

Airplay is entirely redundant in my household. I have so many ways to play music through my Sonos, including from my iPod, iPod and anything that play through A2DP.

I don't think so.
Airplay on iOS 4.2 makes you stream a (compatible) video to your Apple TV over the air.
Even the videos shot with the iPhone.
Not sure the Sonos can do that.

It's a real cool feature..

Pieterjan Lansbergen, 2010-11-22

I don't shoot video at all. ;-)

No need for Airplay, got Sonos, thanks, Volker. I don´t own a TV set. Why should I, I can pay the GEZ without having one.

I detest the "unified" inbox. By golly, why do I get mails from people that do not realize they flood me from all kinds of accounts? Mr., I never knew that you were so much in need, in the office you looked perfectly normal...

I dont want to get in a tap-orgy just to check on the last mail I sent to the person in question.

Folders are nice but not a compelling argument.

Multitask can be achieved by virtue of JB.

Last but not least, who wants to loose out on the freedom to own a device they paid for, so the jailbreak is decrippling a nearly perfect device (you could actually call it a computer).

I wait for the printing - that's what I keep the old MBP 17" for :-)

In short: update when JB is ready. There is no hurry at all.
