So in a recent post, I wrote that Apple made an error when Steve Jobs stated that a person could walk into an Apple Store, plunk down five hundred and walk away with an iPad they could use at home without the need of another computer. I argued that Apple still had no way to configure an Airport with the iPad, iPhone or iPod.

Well, it seems I was wrong.

According to this post at ARS Technica, Apple will, in fact, deliver Airport configuration in the forthcoming iOS 5. Can I get a Alleluia!

The post also mentions several other modifications to Assistance, IM, Facetime and Sounds.
