    Will there be a cost associated with upgrading the iPad from OS 3 to OS 4? I ask because I'm going to be purchasing one within the next two weeks, and the update won't come out until the fall. It'd be pretty lame if I had to pay only a few months later...

    ...if I have to pony up come fall, any idea at what I'm looking at cost-wise?

    Where on earth have you heard "fall 2010?"

    Itll be less than two months after this week.

    I believe they stated it would be free. However, it's quite possible major OS upgrades subsequent to 4.0 will come at a cost.

    The TOS say that iPad OS 4 will be free and all other updates will cost.

    Heh, +1...here's the link: iPhone OS 4

    Scroll down to the bottom, and look under "iPhone OS 4 Compatibility."

    Technically the TOS just say that the next major update will be free. It doesn't specify one way or another for updates after that.

    I would say free upgrade for the iPad due to it's cost and maybe charge for iPod touch and iPhone users. The new iphone will no doubt have os4 pre installed.
