MacStories reports that Apple has seeded the first beta version of iOS 4.3 to developers. The iOS 4.3 beta is available in versions for iPad, iPhone 4 and 3GS, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, as well as a separate download for the new Apple TV.

Details of changes included in the new version are unknown at this time, although Apple has been said to be building in support for personal hotspot functionality as seen on the Verizon iPhone, as well as possible support for recurring billing for App Store content subscriptions such as News Corp.'s forthcoming tablet-focused news publication, The Daily.

Surely this is evidence of an iPhone for the Sprint network. ;)

iOS 4.3 Beta Released Today

http://www.macstories.net/news/breaking-apple-releases-ios-4-3-beta

This is interesting... from the macstories article

It looks like iOS 4.3 has some cool new gestures built specifically for the iPad. 4 & 5 finger gestures; pinch to the home screen, swipe up to reveal multitasking tray, swipe left/right to switch apps.

Going to install tonight on my iPad to see how it works. Great for those of us who don't want to be hitting the home button all the time, esp in a quiet room or in bed at night with a light sleeping spouse. :)

It has also been reported that this beta updates support for AirPlay video in that you can now stream video from third-party apps and the internet (i.e. Safari). If true and the support is wide-spead then this makes the new Apple TV a real contender. I can't wait to stream content from internet-based news sites (of course, Flash could rear its ugly head, I just hope that more sites are converting to H.264 and HTML5).

Swipe up for multitasking tray would be awesome.

I don't even use it now much due to the double click, often it's easier just to tape the icon on screen again instead.

Are you kidding me, Apple? No support for the iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G? Why would you do that in the middle of an OS?

It would be pointless if they were only adding features they don't intend for those devices to support (read: Airplay).

Yes, personal hotspot is there (must call AT&T to enable tethering) and taking a screenshot has a new sound.

I wouldn't be surprised if 4.3 is what comes alongside iPad 2, which in Apple's mind could be a new evolution of iOS, and therefore dumps the iPhone 3G, didn't it have the same RAM as the iPhone anyway? It was always going to be dumped sooner rather than later. Shame it's now though, my family don't like the iPhone 4, but won't be happy if they don't get updated software anymore :rolleyes:
