iOS 4.3 Now Available

The iPad 2 may ship with iOS 4.3 on March 11, but eager Apple fans don't have to wait, as the iOS 4.3 update is now available for the iPad as well as qualifying iPhone and iPod touch models. While iOS 4.3 isn't as major an update as iOS 4.2 was, it does bring a number of new features.

The Safari web browser has been updated with the Nitro JavaScript engine, which Apple claims will increase browser performance. Also, AirPlay is now open to third party developers, users can stream video and photos to an Apple TV, and iOS 4.3 supports HD video output.

Another new feature is iTunes Home Sharing for iOS. This allows users to stream content from a desktop or notebook running iTunes 10.2 to an iPad, iPhone, or any other iOS device. In addition, Apple patched a few unspecified bugs and applied minor visual and operational tweaks across the operating system.

Specific to the iPad is the ability to assign the iPad's side sliding switch as either a mute switch or orientation lock.

Apple iPhones will receive the most notable update in the form of Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. This feature was present on the Verizon iPhone at launch, though not found on the AT&T model.
