Last week Apple seeded the GM seed of iOS 4.2, which is the last seed before the official release. While no official release date for iOS 4.2 has been set, considering the GM is out, the official build is coming very very soon.
Over the weekend, German website Inside-Handy.de reported that iOS 4.2 is due November 9, 2010 which is information apparently provided by a Deutsche Telekom representative.
However, another blog called iFun, is offering a different report, indicating that the release of iOS 4.2 is due November 12, 2010. This report comes from a discovery reportedly indicating a carrier update pushing out on November 12, 2010, which then seems like a typical time to release an iOS update.
iPhoneinCanada.ca has also received its own insider tips indicating that the release date is November 9, 2010. Moreover, many users have been reporting that their iTunes update date when an iPhone is attached indicates that the next update check will be on November 9, 2010, however this may be more coincidence.
It is difficult to say which date is accurate but Apple does typically release software and products on Tuesdays and November 9 is a Tuesday.
What do you think? November 9, November 12, or later?
Thanks to Jonathan for the tip!
