Steve Jobs， Apples CEO， said， Once again， the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to， but very few， if any， will ever be able to hit.
Jobs added that users can organise applications with drag-and-drop simplicity. Mail is now a unified inbox with a threaded message view.
Mark Heraghty， managing director at Virgin Media Business， said the new software update boosted the business credentials of Apples iPad.
iOS 4.2 marks a real gear-change for the iPad. Its new features mean that the device could become a serious contender to the more conventional PCs in the workplace， he said.
Other iOS 4.2 features include digital media streaming tool， Airplay， and a free Find My iPhone application to help protect personal data. Airprint-enabled printers include HP Photosmart， HP Laserjet Pro and HP Officejet.
The latest version of Apples mobile OS can be downloaded by plugging in the device to a Mac or PC and following instructions on iTunes.
