Along with iOS 4.0.1 for iPhone, Apple has released iOS 3.2.1 for the iPad.

This update is a little more exciting than the iOS 4.0.1 for the iPhone in that it does more than just re-jig the signal strength bars.

  • Improved Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent copy and paste of single-page PDF attachments in Mail
  • Addressed an issue that could cause video playback to freeze
  • Improved reliability of video-out when using iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter
  • Added Bing as an option for Safari's search field

This update is compatible with both the WiFi and 3G iPad models.

[UPDATE: Not sure if this is relevant, but this update has hosed my iPad, so proceed with caution.]

  • Quick...we need a diversion!

    This smacks of "lets divert everyone's attention from the iPhone4!".

    Sorry, but you can't trust Steve Jobs, anymore.

    • Oh Please!

      @trickytom2
      If this is a diversion, then why did they also update the iPhone software today? An update, BTW, that should only shows us more accurately how poor our signal strength is.

      The iPad has been out since the end of May and Apple is releasing what is basically a bug fix. Sounds right on time for a normal Apple update to a new device.

      Go away.

      • Sorry, not buying it.

        @macadam

        It's too coincidental, and there wasn't the usual one week's notice. Also, these are very lame fixes...nothing more than bullshit.

    • My iPad is fine

      @trickytom2

      So apparently Apple sucks at creating diversions too.

    Seriously..how pathetic is this new "feature"?

    Were millions of iPad users demanding this? Was even one?

    • Desperate

      @trickytom2
      Are you just desperate to criticize, or do you actually have constructive thought capability?

      I'm a Windows7, Ubuntu, Mac, and iPhone user. I search with Google, Bing, and Yahoo (rarely). Adding more options is a good thing.

      • Fine..go enjoy your powerful new feature.

        @macadam

        I hope that the next update includes adding two more meteors to the screensaver.

  • RE: iOS 3.2.1 for iPad also out

    I thought MS was the update guru's...Apple was so stable what is that all about? They sure did their best to dilute consumers views of MS but I keep seeing updates all over for Apple even the Ipad now what not even 2 months and there have been now how many itterations so that it "works" right? things that make you go HHHMMMMMMM. One reason I don't like "Big Brother".

    Glad to see MS hasn't entered the mudslinging like Apple did but instead chose to market their own product just for what it does, nothing about others.

  • It "hosed" your iPad?

    The screenshot alone says millions. You're using Windows Vista/7, and that may be the first of many possibilities in why your iPad got screwed up.

    Being upfront, I love my MacBook Pro. I wouldn't trade it for a PC that's twice as powerful. Snow Leopard is my favorite operating system, because it does the things <b>I need</b> better than Windows - that's not to say Windows is <i>bad</i>, just that it doesn't do what I need better than OS X. Mac fanboyism avoided, okay? Please?

    From personal experience, my iPhone 3GS works better when synced with a Mac. I think Apple may <i>intentionally</i> mess with performance, but I wouldn't know. Just from my own experience, iTunes and related iProducts seem to harmonize better with OS X than Windows.

    Windows is known to mess up iPhone/iPad software images, as was the case with my iPod touch, and my iPhone. Since getting my MacBook Pro, I haven't had any software issues. My iPad updated to 3.2.1 perfectly fine, and that may be because it was from my Mac, or that I always do a clean installation; never an update. There's something about system caches I don't trust, as is the case with OS X, Windows, and iPhone/iPod/iPad updates.

    • But yet, it's our fault?

      @Ktroje <br><br>That 90% of the world uses PC's, and that Apple can't be bothered to write decent software for them? Dude, get real.
