Filed under: OS Updates, Apple, iPhone, MobileiOS 4.2 was supposed to become available today, however new reports are coming in that its release has been delayed again. While the previously rumored delay existed thanks to issues with Japanese characters not being displayed properly, this delay has its roots in something more important — Wi-Fi connection issues that have been reported by many users of the golden master for the iPad.
What happens is that the iPad simply disconnects from a Wi-Fi network just a few minutes after it has connected. This is the most widely reported behavior of the bug, although some extreme cases, where users simply can't use Safari at all, have also been reported. Rumor has it that Apple has decided to delay the release of iOS 4.2 until they fix this bug. Before that though, Apple may even release a second golden master build, with the bug fixed — and that could happen as early as tomorrow. If another GM is pushed out, the final release may be delayed by at least a week. Either way, iOS 4.2 is on track to reach consumers before Thanksgiving.
