We thought iOS 4.2.1 was pretty much the same on both the iPhone/iPod touch and the iPad. We may have been wrong. The arrival of iOS 4 limited the number of photos a user could copy at one time using the iPhone's Photo app to five. If you attempt to copy a sixth photo, the "copy" button becomes grayed out. This limit remains in iOS 4.2.1, but only on the iPhone. On the iPad, the restriction isn't there. For some reason the iPad, even on iOS 4, does not have this restriction. The iOS 4.2.1 update allows iPad users to copy an unlimited number of photos.
