iOS 4.2 delayed? WiFi connection bug is fly in the ointment

You know what day it is today, right? Yes, it’s another Rumoured To Be iOS 4.2 Update Day! November 9th passed without action, so if you’ve been pinning all your hopes on November 12th then we’re afraid you may be disappointed.

It seems that a big fat bug has been discovered in the iOS 4.2 gold master, which is the version released early to developers. It’s the WiFi that’s affected, with MacStories saying that, “even if the iPad manages to successfully connect to a local network, the connection is lost after a few minutes.”

If Apple is now working on a new build of the gold master, it will be a good few days before it makes it onto consumer handsets – but with no word yet from Apple it could still be sooner than we think. We will, of course, keep you posted. [via Slashgear]
