Earlier today, BGR reported that Apple will release iOS 4.3 today, three days ahead of the previously-announced Friday launch date. But according to The Loop, the early release will actually occur tomorrow.
The speculation of iOS coming early seems to be solid, it's just the day that's off. If I were sitting waiting for iOS 4.3 to hit, I'd be ready tomorrow.
Potential support for the notion of a release tomorrow comes from a MacRumors reader who just asked an Apple chat representative about the release and was informed that it will indeed be tomorrow.

While Apple's sales staff is usually not kept up to date on the company's product and software release plans, it is possible that Apple has provided the information about the upcoming free update in order to assist its customers. Not all chat support representative are offering the same information, however, as one representative we just asked claimed that the release is coming on Friday as originally scheduled.

Regardless, BGR's report claimed a release time of 1:00 PM Eastern / 10:00 AM Pacific today, the company's usual time for iOS releases, so we should know in less than half an hour whether iOS 4.3 is coming today.

The rumor came from BGR so I won't be surprised if it doesn't get released today.

Ask Apple
So did his finger slip on the dart he was throwing at the calendar on the board, thereby giving today as the day of release?

Dear Darren R,

Welcome to MacRumors...You're famous!!

That being said, I believe it will arrive either today, tomorrow, Thursday, or Friday. You can take that to the bank.

And Darren, you are welcome to quote me on that. ;)

I didn't read to see if this was said, but also if the Apple chat representative was outsourced and it was Thursday there then it would go to reason that it could still be a Friday release.

I would really really like to know where on plant Earth this could occur!

This was the same guy who told me last week the iPhone 5 was being released. Instead we got the iPad 2. So much for what he knows :p

Are there places in the world that are 48 hours apart? Because today is Tuesday, isn't it? Is that even possible?

Edit: smithrh-obviously great minds think alike...yours is faster, though!
