      Three things off the top of my head. All mere speculation, of course.

      1. A month before release, a lot of the physical iPad units would've already been manufactured with a certain version of iOS on them, and they probably had a feature freeze before release and couldn't put it in even if they wanted to.

      2. There was probably a lot of other stuff on the developers' plates. I imagine new product launches are never smooth even for a company as big as Apple. Attention was probably on fixing bugs, marketing, making sure supply met demand, etc.

      3. We can safely assume they'd want to design it from scratch (given that Steve Jobs was evidently opposed to simply upscaling the iPhone calculator), to go from nothing to finished in a month seems unrealistic.

    sounds true, which means it isn't.
