  • Multitasking on iPad - iOS 4.2 brings multitasking from iPhone and iPod touch to iPad. So you can be more productive as you work, have more fun as you play, or do a little of both. Everything happens smoothly and efficiently — without slowing down the performance of the foreground app or draining the battery unnecessarily.
  • Folders on iPad - Now your iPad has more room for more apps. Move apps into folders with drag-and-drop simplicity to declutter your Home screens and keep your apps organized for fast access to your favorites.
  • AirPrint - AirPrint makes it simple to print email, photos, web pages, and documents right from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. A few taps is all it takes to go from viewing it onscreen to holding a printed copy. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect.
  • AirPlay - AirPlay lets you stream digital media wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your Apple TV and AirPlay-enabled speakers. So you can watch movies and photos on your widescreen TV and play music through the best speakers in the house.
  • Find My iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Find My iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch — the MobileMe feature that helps you locate your missing device and protect its data — is now free on any iPhone 4, iPad, or fourth-generation iPod touch running iOS 4.2.3 Once you set it up, you can find your lost device on a map, display a message on its screen, remotely set a passcode lock, and initiate a remote wipe to delete your data. And if you eventually find your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can restore everything from your last backup.
  • iTunes TV show rentals
  • Even better Mail - See messages from all your accounts in a unified inbox, organize messages by threads, and open attachments in third-party apps.
  • Find text on web pages - In Safari, you can do a quick text search to find and highlight specific words and phrases on even the longest web pages.
  • Notes with fonts - Customize your notes using different fonts — Marker Felt, Helvetica, and Chalkboard.
  • Keyboard and dictionary enhancements - iOS 4.2 includes support for over 50 languages and dialects, with more than 30 new international keyboards and dictionaries for iPad.
  • Enhanced enterprise support - Businesses can take advantage of stronger security features, new device management capabilities, and improved enterprise integration.
