iOS 4.3 now available for download

2 days ahead of schedule Apple have (finally) released iOS 4.3 for iPhone & iPad. This is a biggie for me, as it now turns your iPhone into a fully fledged WiFi hotspot. This means I can now use the WiFi iPad anywhere, and don’t have to worry about internet not being available. Bonus.

Here are some of the changes for iOS 4.3:

  • Personal Hotspot
    • Share iPhone 4 cellular data connection with up to 5 devices (combination of up to 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
    • Play videos from the Photos app including the Camera Roll album, iTunes previews, enabled third-party apps and websites on Apple TV
  • Faster Safari performance with Apple Nitro JavaScript
  • HD video out using the Apple Digital AV Adapter
    • View 720p HD videos from Videos app, iPod app, Photos, YouTube, Safari, Keynote, and enabled third-party apps on an HDMI display
  • New Settings
    • Messages setting for number of times to repeat an alert
  • iPad side switch setting to lock screen rotation or mute audio notifications and sound effects

You can use these direct download links (Thanks @MikeCTZA) to get the files now without having to wait, and then you can manually update your iPhone  or iPad

Looking forward to giving iOS 4.3 a run, and seeing how it works out.

    I tried to update my iPad and it keeps giving me an error when it tries to verify update with Apple. It gives an “unknown error 3194”

    Any help?
