Is there any advantage to upgrade the iPod Touch 2d Gen to iOS 4.2 ?

  • Is the tech specs enough for that new version ?
  • Does it consume more battery ?
  • Will it be slower ?
  • Upgrade from what? 4.1? 3.x?

  • The latest one. I'd say 4.1. Anyway I have done it. And I agreed with Kyle's answer. Dec 7 '10 at 14:06

I'd say yes. I just upgraded a pair of 2nd gen iPod Touches to iOS 4.2 and it's been really solid so far - it hasn't slowed down the device or impacted the battery as far as I can tell. If you have an Airport Express or new Apple TV the AirPlay feature is very nice - this Thanksgiving I really enjoyed being able to stream music to a pair of speakers directly from the iPod in my pocket. (this will affect your battery as the device has to keep WiFi active to stream)

  • I thought AirPlay wasn't available on 2nd gen devices?

  • @MrMage Worked just fine on mine, but I only tested audio. Nov 27 '10 at 14:42
