iOS 4.2 for iPhone in 5 minutes [video]

Any day now Apple will release iOS 4.2 for iPhone and iPod touch so we figured we'd show you everything you needed to know about it in just 5 minutes (okay, 6, but we needed that extra minute!). That includes AirPrint, Airplay, Find in Safari page, new Text Tones, and much more.

Hit play for the highlights and when you're ready for more head on over to our complete iOS 4.2 for iPhone and iPod touch walkthrough and we'll take you step by step through all that's new and exciting.

(We've also got iOS 4.2 for iPad in 10 minutes, and a look at iOS 4.2 on iPhone 3G performance, so check those out as well.)

This is supposed to be available tomorrow (Friday) right? Is there any hope for HDR for iPod Touch 4G?

Question: Do you think it will be possible to stream music from my Apple TV TO my iPod Touch ? My Apple TV is plugged into my sound system (optical connection). I'd want the same music to also stream to my Bose, which my iPod is connected to... Without the need of an Airport Express...

Victimsofgravity says:

It's ironic that I can't watch the video on my iPhone. Come on guys!

Rene Ritchie says:

@Pete: It plays fine on my iPhone and iPad. It's a YouTube video. There's even an app for that :)

SockRolid says:

Great Review Rene. Can't wait to install the update.

Rob says:

does anyone know the bug fixes. does it properly fix the prox sensor? (yes, i have the latest firmware and its better but not fixed)

Jebadoa says:

@david amen brother. The shorter SMS tone the better.

DBox says:

WTF text tones!??!? Apple's lost their damn mind. SMS tones should be short, and a bit on the subtle side. At least give us 2 of that or the option to use custom tones.
