iOS 4.2 Beta 2 Adds Tethering Settings to iPad

Another new find in the latest iOS 4.2 Beta reveals tethering settings for the iPad, reports 9to5Mac.

Hidden within the APN network settings on the iPad 3G is a new section dedicated to internet tethering. This tethering appears to be the type of tethering iPhones currently use versus tethering the iPhone’s internet to an iPad. This section asks for the usual username and password to setup internet tethering, and this is similar to what the iPhone had before tethering got an official iOS interface. Because of this, we believe that internet tethering is in the iPad’s future and may even launch with iOS 4.2 in November.

Notably, the tethering settings do not appear when used with a device on AT&T.
