Apple’s latest TV commercial for the iPad – titled ‘iPad Is Amazing’ – shows off three of the headline new features in the recent iOS 4.2 software update. Multi-tasking, AirPlay streaming, and AirPrint are highlighted in the new ad.
I’m a little surprised that they are highlighting AirPrint, which has not come close to delivering what Apple promised it would, and is unusable right now for the vast majority of iPad users. As in for now there is no support for shared printers, and it is only usable with a very small range of HP printers, without the use of a hack many users will be unaware of.
Seems like by showcasing AirPrint they’re just asking for a lot of tech support calls from disgruntled users.
