At the Apple special event in San Francisco Apple announced details of iOS 4.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch that will be available next week, however CEO Steve Jobs also offered a sneak peak of iOS 4.2, which will be released for the iPad, iPhone and iPod.

iPad owners can look forward to "everything for iPad" bringing some of the recent iOS 4 features such as the ability to create folders to the tablet platform.

This basically means that while iPod and iPhone users get to play with 4.1, iPad owners will have to wait.

Features include wireless printing, AirPlay, an update of AirTunes which will bring the ability to stream audio, video and view photos over Wi-Fi.

The update is due out in November for all iOS devices and will be available as a free download via iTunes.
