Apple releases iOS 4.3

The iPad is launching in the US in a few days time. Apple has prematurely released iOS 4.3 for the following Apple products:

– iPhone 4
– iPhone 3GS
– iPad
– iPod touch (4th generation)
– iPod touch (3rd generation)

This update comes with a number of software updates, including:

-> Personal Hotspot which allows you to share iPhone 4 cellular data with up to 5 other devices (3 Wi-Fi, 3 Bluetooth, and 1 USB)

-> iTunes Home Sharing – Play music, movies and TV shows from a shared iTunes library on a Mac or PC (requires iTunes 10.2)

-> New AirPlay features allowing you to play videos from the Photos app including the Camera Roll album, third-party apps and websites on Apple TV.

-> Play slideshows from Photos on Apple TV

-> Faster Safari performance with Apple Nitro JavaScript engine. I think we will all find this one useful!

-> Ping updates such as push notifications

-> New Phone Settings, such as messages setting for number of times to repeat a message alert.

And of course a number of minor bug fixes.
