Apple May Release iOS 4.2 For iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch On November 9th Or 12th

iOS 4.2 GM features

Apple seeded developers of its iOS Developer Program with iOS 4.2 GM version earlier in the week.

The Golden Master (GM) version means that it is the shipping version of the software that developers must use to develop and submit iOS apps that are compatible with iOS 4.2.

Apple has already started approving Game Center, multitasking enabled iPad apps to the App Store.

Based on previous releases, it is widely speculated that Apple will release iOS 4.2 to users sometime this week. 

Folks at 9to5Mac are reporting that Apple will release iOS 4.2 either on Tuesday, November 9th or on Friday, November 12th.

They have received the conflicting information from two German websites, Inside-Handy.de and iFun.

Inside-Handy.de claim that they have received information from Deutsche Telekom representatives.

While, iFun have discovered that Apple will be pushing out some carrier updates on November 12th, which indicates that iOS 4.2 will be released on the same day.

As you can see from the screenshot below, the URL of the carrier update reveals that it will be released on November 12th.

iOS 4.2 Carrier Updates

It’s all speculation at this stage. 9to5Mac goes on to add:

We are certainly skeptical of this information as carrier-representatives may not be the best source of information as Apple makes the iOS release dates, not them. On the other hand November 9th is a Tuesday as well as the Droid Pro’s launch date – Apple would surely love to rain on Android’s parade. We are also skeptical about the November 12th report because Apple pushing out European carrier updates next Friday could just be some coincidence, like in the past. Also, this may mean a November 9th launch of Mac OS X 10.6.5 as that version of Mac OS X is required for AirPrint printing on iOS. Oh, and iTunes 10.1 should be making an appearance on iOS 4.2′s launch date too.

Are you looking forward to the iOS 4.2 update? Please let us know in the comments section below.
