The iOS 4.2 non-delay

Mac Stories and others are reporting that iOS 4.2 is being delayed while Wi-Fi issues are resolved. Some expect that the update will be distributed on Tuesday instead of today.

Here’s the thing. That November 12th release date was supplied by the rumor mill, not Apple. If iOS 4.2 fails to ship by then, it will still be on schedule.

Jobs said that iOS 4.2 will ship by November. Let’s not call the delivery “delayed” until it actually is.
