As we figured, once we heard about a November launch date for iOS 4.2, the beta is being made available plenty early. Of course, if you want the beta, you’ll need to be enrolled in the iPhone Developer Standard or Enterprise programs.
What’s new in 4.2? Among other things, the iPad will finally get multitasking and of course there is the HDR photo option as well. 4.2 is primarily about the iPad, but expect to see some iPhone and iPod touch improvements as we get closer to release.
