Apple has released the latest version of its operating system, potentially benefiting those who buy one of its devices

People who sell a mobile and put the money towards buying an iPhone over the coming weeks may be doing so at the perfect time, after its manufacturer Apple announced the release of the latest version of its operating system.

Among the benefits of the new iOS 4.2 are more than 100 extra features, including upgrades to the folders, unified inbox and multitasking functions.

As well as revolutionising the experience enjoyed by iPhone users, the new platform will work with both the iPad and the iPod touch.

Steve Jobs, chief executive officer at Apple, said: "Once again, the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to, but very few, if any, will ever be able to hit."

Another addition on the operating system, Game Center, allows people to play the latest titles against their friends and associates, while also discovering what games others are playing.

Apple released the iPhone 4 in the UK and four other countries in June, before it was rolled out across the rest of the world.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "This new operating system will set the standard for its competitors. If you want to have the best, you could upgrade your phone to a handset that supports this new technology. You could even trade your old mobile in for cash."
