We reported earlier on a rumor suggesting that new iOS 4.2 AirPrint feature that allowed users to print wirelessly to any printer connected to a PC or Mac had been canceled. Because of the rumor, a frustrated MacRumors reader emailed Steve Jobs and suggested that Apple could begin to lose credibility and become known for announcing “vaporware.” Steve Jobs replied with an email that simply read:
AirPrint has not been pulled. Don’t believe everything you read.
So there you go, folks. If the email’s legit (and Steve isn’t mixing up the story at all), we will still see AirPrint arrive in iOS 4.2, which is set to drop any day now. Don’t forget to join us at 5PM ET this afternoon for our live iOS 4.2 preview show, where we’ll discuss all the new features of Apple’s next mobile OS.
