Rumour Mill – iOS update coming on Sunday

A week late, alarmgate is to get its fix

Apple says it will fix the iPhone’s alarm issues “after November 7th”, hinting that the iOS 4.2 update could be coming this weekend.

The bug, which has been setting the alarm an hour later than specified since the clocks changed, has gone unfixed for a week, but this admission suggests we could see a full update – including enhanced multitasking and folders support, wireless printing and AirPlay – coming to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches earlier than anticipated.
