Apple's iOS 4.2 is now available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The most notable features include multitasking, unified inbox and AirPrint, a Wi-Fi printing architecture.

- AirPrint will allow the iPad to print to Hewlett-Packard printers such as Photosmart, LaserJet Pro and Officejet.
- GameCenter will allow friends to play games against each other.
- The iPad can now rent TV episodes directly from iTunes.
- There's support for 25 languages.
