Enterprise Mobility: iOS 4.2 Brings iPad Users Up to Par
The long-awaited release of iOS 4.2 gives iPad users access to features such as multitasking, folder-based app organization and other goodies, including free access to the Find My iPhone feature of the MobileMe service from Apple. It brings the iPad into line with the iPhone, by turning what was originally the orientation switch into a muter. The iPad's Mail application gains the ability to thread e-mail conversations, and users with multiple e-mail accounts will appreciate the unified inbox that brings all of one's mail together. Gamers with iPads now have access to the Apple Game Center, and users of all sorts will enjoy the ability to search for text on Web pages or use one of three fonts in the Notes application. This release of iOS for iPad adds support for another 25 languages, including Korean, Portuguese and traditional Chinese. Wireless printing with AirPrint feature and the wireless media streaming and AirPlay are available for both iPad and iPhone as of this release.
