According to several sources, Apple will release iOS version 4.2 next week which includes the ability to multitask on an iPhone and iPad.
The new OS will also include several bug updates to the iPhone and iPod touch, that caused problems with iPhone alarm clocks following a recent move to Daylight Saving Time, especially in Europe.
Some iPhone owners complained that alarm clocks went off an hour later if they had set recurring alarms. One-time alarms were seemingly unaffected.
“We’re aware of an issue related to daylight-saving time and repeating alarms and will deliver a fix with the iOS 4.2 software update this month,” said Apple in a statement to The Telegraph.
“We suggest customers set non-repeating alarms for now, and reset after 7 November to resolve the issue.”
iOS 4.2 Build 8C134 has previously been released to Apple’s iOS Dev Center developer community. Developers are already able to submit iOS 4.2 apps to Apple.
As part of the update, iPad owners will also get Folders and Game Center.
