If you were hoping to get your hands on iOS 4.2 today, sorry to disappoint you, but it’s reportedly been pushed back to November 16th. iPhoneHellas, which typically has a good track record when it comes to Apple related rumors, reported the news earlier today.
Meanwhile, MacStories is reportingthat the reason for the delay is a last minute glitch affecting wi-fi usage on the iPad.
Basically, even if the iPad manages to successfully connect to a local network, the connection is lost after a few minutes. This seems to be the most common problem among users, although some can’t simply use Safari at all. The bug has been reported to Apple, and they apparently decided to delay the release of iOS 4.2 to fix the bug.
