Apple Teases iOS 4.2 with AirPlay Media Streaming

Been waiting (im)patiently for the Apple iPad to gain the multitasking capabilities that are already available for the iPhone and iPod touch? It looks like you might have to wait a little longer. Apple says the next update for the iPad will be iOS 4.2, which will also be available for the iPhone and iPod touch later this year.

The new operating system includes all the features inĀ iOS 4.1, such as HDR photos, TV show retnals, and Game Center. But it also has some new features, including:

  • Wireless printing
  • AirPlay for streaming audio, video, and photos over WiFi to other devices

This will also be the first version of iOS for the iPad that supports multitasking, folders, and other iOS 4.x features.

Apple says OS 4.2 will be available in November for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

  1. Imagine if Apple allows apps to stream their video/audio from an iOS device to the new AppleTV thru AirPlay…do you really need Hulu Plus on your AppleTV then? :)

  2. Since AirPlay is a button in the video player it will be interesting to seevwherevit gets implementer. Will we be able to do this in the ABC app? Hulu Plus? Sling Player?’s video player using HTML5? Dunno. We’ll know soon enough though since it’s in iOS 4.1 for the iPhone next week…
