iOS 4.3 is Here! Here’s What You Get

Even though all manner of blogs were predicting the latest Apple iOS to appear yesterday Tea Time, 4.3 has just dropped into iTunes within the last hour or so.

It’s not a huge leap but it does give things a nice little tweak in the functions.

So – what’s better with your iPhone/Pad/Pod with iOS 4.3:

  • Better AirPlay: You will now be able to shoot videos from your iOS device to your Apple TV. Yeah, you need Apple TV for that one.
  • Faster Safari: Mobile Safari has been given the desktop version’s “Nitro” JavaScript engine and Apple is claiming that it’s twice as fast.
  • iTunes Home Sharing: Stream music and videos from your computer’s iTunes library to an iOS device over your Wi-Fi network – which is nice 🙂
  • iPad Switch Choice: Apple has listened and now YOU decide whether you want your iPad’s switch to activate mute or orientation lock. Win!

… and best of all:

  • Personal Hotspots: It’s been a long time coming but now, when in a not spot you can now share your phone’s 3G signal with whatever other gadgets you’ve got with you (iPad, laptop, anything). Even though Apple says it’ll work for “up to 5 devices” the site says “works with up to three devices over Wi-Fi, three devices over Bluetooth, and one device over USB.” Personally I don’t care – even if I’m only able to hook up my laptop to my iPhone I’ll be happy 🙂

Bounce over to iTunes and update now!
