Apple May Release Mac OS X 10.6.5, iTunes 10.1 Tomorrow, iOS 4.2 On Friday
MacStories claims that they have received information from “an inside source at AT&T”.
Apple is planning to release iOS 4.2, a major OS update for iPhones, iPods and iPads, on Friday November 12th at 10 AM PST. We also learned that updates to iTunes and Mac OS X will be released sometime tomorrow â€” iTunes will be reaching version 10.10.0 (simply called iTunes 10.1) and Mac OS X will jump to the long-awaited 10.6.5 version.
They later added:
According to our source, AT&T staff is required to thoroughly test all Apple mobile devices that are intended to use their networks and test them in their intended environments that include using Macs with versions Apple deems necessary to properly fulfill new test products.
Interestingly, according to MacStories source, Apple was planning to release iOS 4.2 on October 26th but had to delay it as they found a bug that did not display Japanese characters properly.
So if that is indeed true then Apple was probably trying to release iOS 4.2 before the annoying daylight saving alarm bug affected users in Europe and US. We found it quite odd that Apple didnâ€™t fix the issue in time. The unexpected bug probably explains the reason for the delay in releasing the fix for the daylight saving alarm bug.
Over the weekend, two German websites, Inside-Handy.de and iFun had claimed that Apple will release iOS 4.2 either on Tuesday, November 9th or on Friday, November 12th.
