The long-awaited iOS 4.2 iPad update has been released at 10AM PST today. Apple launched the new firmware for all recent iOS devices, including the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Not only is this the first time that iOS runs the same version on the iPad and iPhone, it adds many features to the iPad that iPhone users have been enjoying for months.
Two of the most useful changes include multitasking and folders. Not only can you listen to your Pandora radio station while doing other things, Apple's multitasking bar will quickly switch between suspended apps. Folders allow several apps to be stored in one icon and organized by category or name.
