iOS 4.2.1 GM seed for iPhone, iPad released to developers

Apple has just released iOS 4.2.1 GM (gold master) for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (build 8C148) to developers.

iOS 4.2 GM was originally released a couple weeks ago leading to speculation that a general public release was coming soon. However, last Friday Apple instead released a second iOS 4.2 GM for iPad, and now with a 4.2.1 GM it's anyone's guess what the internal schedule looks like (or why the update servers are going up and down today!).

If you're a registered developer go grab it now. If you notice any changes, drop us a line or let us know in comments!
