iOS 4.2 Beta 3 announced

iOS 4.2 Beta 3 announced

So I was pleasantly surprised to see an announcement in my developer email inbox for the release of iOS 4.2 Beta 3.

I started to download it instantly.

I’ve already installed iOS Beta 4.2 releases 1 and 2.  I was glad to have App. Folders and multitasking on my iPad.  The beta releases have worked fairly well.  The one glitch that I ran into was with the Netflix App.

It would select you movie and when you pressed “Watch Instantly” it would pause for a minute and “Crash Instantly”.  Sometimes restarting the iPad and selecting a new movie would fix it.  Sometimes not.  But again, this was with the iOS 4.2 Beta releases.

So hopefully they, Apple and Netflix are getting this useful diagnostic information that they require and Netflix will work great when the the final version of iOS 4.2 is released.

-Update-

One way to fix NetFlix App. crashes, is to uninstall the application.  Then, reinstall the application again.

You’ll have to reenter your credentials but that is a small price to pay to get NetFlix working on the iPad again.

They are working towards a November release date.  One of the other noteworthy features included is Wireless Printing or AirPrint.  It looks like there will be updates to the MacOS 10.6 Snow Leopard and iTunes 10 as well to support the printing feature.  There will also be enhancements for Enterprise deployments and Accessibility Enhancements.

So things are improving in the States in contract to the situation in Canada.
