    So not even a month after release the iPhone 4 gets an OS update with bug fixes and enhances features, but us iPad owners still got launch day version iOS 3.2.

    I guess we are the test group. :mad:

    Calm down... It's just because of the antenna issue.

    That, but they are also fixing other things as well.

    Maybe there was something that was wrong with the iPhone's software? I don't think the iPad has any major issues that compare to the iPhone 4's issues.

    And maybe the iPad will get 4.1 and skip 4.0. So who is the "test group?"

    Thing is, swapping antenna bar images and changing the algorithms to display them isn't that hard, it's a 4.0.1-worthy change.

    Making this a 4.1 release is either political, so it seems more important, or there's more due in this update that we don't know about.

    There's a chance the iPad will get 4.1, but might have to wait until 4.2.

    And WTF is wrong with your iPad OS? The mobile OS's share similar architecture but are unique in many ways. Unless you're holding it wrong, your iPad should be working fine. ;)

    Once you get hold of iOS 4 multitasking, it feels subpar and downright archaic.

    Too true. Since buying the iPhone 4 I've been wondering if I really need the iPad at all anymore. Time will tell.

    The iPad only has 256 MB of RAM, so multitasking might not be as smooth as it is on the iPhone 4. We'll just have to wait and see though.

    Exactly. I deleted the app from my iPad because it's useless. It's screaming for mulitasking.

    I'm just puzzled over why we can't get OS 4 now and then the extra updates for whatever it is they are doing to it for the fall release. It just doesn't make any sense. Doing one thing at a time on this thing just blows. I don't even use the email app since it's far easier to use the browser.

    Folders, too! Swiping through pages of apps is a pain.

    I haven't update any of the 3 Touches in the house to 4 because i want folders on my iPad. It will frustrate me to no end to have it on one device and not on another.....

    I went down from nine pages to three on my phone. It will be great once we can do that on our iPads as well.
