iOS 43 available for download

first_imgiOS 4.3 is available for download right now, confirming yesterday’s rumors that the version would ship ahead of the iPad 2’s release on Friday.The update includes Personal Hotspot (3 devices on WiFi and 2 on Bluetooth), iTunes Home Sharing, new feature’s for Apple’s AirPlay including the ability to play video straight from the iPhone’s camera app, increased Javascript performance in Safari, more features for Apple’s Ping social network, and a few new customization settings. The most notable of these is the ability to toggle the iPad hardware switch between mute and locking the screen orientation.AdChoices广告So among those the big ones are the improved speeds in Safari, the ability to stream music from your PC’s iTunes library (this is Home Sharing), and the Personal Hotspot. The iPad switch will relieve some tablet user of a minor annoyance, as well the new ability to customize how many times your SMS alerts are repeated.And what’s missing from the update? Some people had hoped for support for new gestures from this upgrade (like (three and four finger swipes). Plus lots of people would like to see a new notification system, but that was never in the cards to begin with.Devices eligible for the update are the iPhone 4 (GSM only), iPhone 3GS, iPad, and the 3rd and 4th gen iPod touch. The download is 669.8MB. Downloads are going slowly at the moment and iTunes tells me that it will take about 61 minutes. The update is free.To download and install iOS 4.3 just plug your iDevice into your computer, load up iTunes, go on the device, and hit the Check for Update button.last_img read more
