New Apple iPad operating system iOS 4.2 is now released to developers. The beta version of the new operating system for Apple iPad iOS 4.2 has been released. Although the final version will not be released to iPad users until November, the beta version gives developers an opportunity to build apps for it.

Key features added

A few of the key features that have been added with this release include the ability to
change the functionality of the screen orientation lock, the addition of folders allowing users to organize up to 20 apps, and the ability to change font of the iPad Notes program. However the biggest change is the inclusion of AirPrint, which allows for iPad, iTouch and iPhone users the ability to print ro a compatiable HP printer at the touch of a button. “AirPrint is Apple’s powerful new printing architecture that matches the simplicity of iOS,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of product marketing. “There’s no set up, no configuration, no printer drivers and no software to download.”

There are additional cool features coming so I’m very excited to start developing for the new OS.  So what do you think? Who is ready to start developing?
