The iPad will get its first major software upgrade this month when an update to its operating system is rolled out for the tablet computer, according to Apple.
Tagged Tuesday with an orange "coming soon" label, a page on Apple's website said that the upcoming version of the company's operating system for its mobile devices -- iOS 4.2 -- will bring more than 100 new features to the iPad.
Among them, Apple says, will be multi-tasking, or the ability to run multiple apps at the same time. The inability to do so was a common complaint about earlier versions of the operating system.
The system's last upgrade, iOS 4.1, allowed multitasking on the iPhone and other Apple gadgets, but not on the iPad, Apple's touch-screen tablet computer.
