    As had been rumored yesterday after a false start, Apple has just released iOS 4.3 to the public, two days ahead of schedule. Updates are available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, and users should be able update their devices by connecting them to iTunes and clicking the "Check for Update" button.

    iOS 4.3 brings a number of enhancements including AirPlay video compatibility for third-party apps and websites, Safari speed improvements, Home Sharing to stream media from any iTunes library to an iOS device via Wi-Fi, and a new option for customizing the iPad's side switch to serve as a mute toggle or screen orientation lock. Finally, iOS 4.3 brings personal hotspot functionality to the GSM iPhone 4 following the feature's debut on the Verizon iPhone last month.

    Been looking forward to the Hotspot. Now, hopefully my carrier (Rogers), hasn't messed with it.

    Home Sharing

    So home sharing works with our iDevices now....but I mostly use home sharing to share video files between macs. So can I wirelessly send video and music to my iDevice?

    4.2.1

    Bah, iTunes gave me the 4.3 Download & Install option, then no downloading. Now, it's reverting to iOS 4.2.1 is the latest version. Will try again shortly :confused:

    EDIT: Now it's downloading (finally!)

    I suppose they wanted to ease the strain on their servers for the iPad 2 release.


    Is it just me, or does this iOS release seem like it deserves a 4.2.2 designation?

    Yep, and it works very nicely too. Even works stearming to iDevice then AirPlaying to AppleTV, albeit we need the :apple:TV update to enable video rather than just audio. Talking of which, where IS the :apple:TV update?
