iOS 4.2 is HERE!

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! REPEAT: STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! iOS 4.2 IS HERE! Of course this will mean absolutely zilch to you if you don’t own an iPhone, an iPod Touch or an iPad. So, if you are one of those, off you pop *waves*.

So, what’s in the new Apple firmware? Well, the Beta version of the firmware has been in Dev(eloper) hands for a few weeks now so it’s not all surprises, but it is here nonetheless. The happiest users will be iPad owners who get 100 new features including; multitasking, folders, a unified inbox and a Game Centre, but all three devices get the nifty new update of AirPlay – the ability to wirelessly stream music to speakers in your home (they have to be AirPlay speakers, obvs). Plus, for free Find My Phone - if you lose your iPhone or iPad, simply power up iTunes and it should tell you where it is, if it's got any battery left.

Apple on Monday announced that Find My iPhone (and iPad, and iPod touch) is now free to use without a MobileMe subscription, allowing users to locate their lost iOS device at no extra cost.

So, go on then, go get it!
