iOS 4.2-compatible iPhone apps beginning to appear in iTunes App Store?

Looks like Apple has begun to release those iOS 4.2-compatible iPhone and iPad app updates into the iTunes App Store. Or so our App Store update would have us believe.

Ally and I have caught DropBox so far. Have you been alerted to any iOS 4.2-compatible app updates in your App Store? Let us know which ones in the comments below!

(And yes, this is another sign that iOS 4.2's release could come any time now.)

Have something to say about this story? Leave a comment! Need help with something else? Ask in our forums!

iOS 4.2-compatible iPhone apps beginning to appear in iTunes App Store?


As far as I know 4.2 stuff has been dropping in all week. Especially iPad stuff, as already mentioned, Flight Control HD updated recently. Today Photo FX and T3 mag. Sure there have been more but can't recall which

Harbour master HD and labyrinth for iPad both have updates for 4.2 multitasking. Hopefully this comes out very sooon, my iPad is laming some key features

My local NBC affiliate just updated their weather app, and it listed iOS 4.2 support as one of the features. It's the first one I've seen, but I'm sure more are on the way!

@mark, indeed. I assume he's hinting that maybe 4.2 is about to drop, although he doesn't state that. Lots of 4.2 compatible apps have been in the store for quite some time now, and this is hardly news. They're just trying to whip up the impatient crowd, and perhaps give some of the devs a little opportunity to plug their wares.

Dropbox and Voice Memos for iPad.
I'm on GM tho, so I don't know if it makes a difference.
