iTunes Home Sharing
Finalized version of iOS 4.3 is now available to developers

Apple just announced its iPad 2 yesterday, and today the company is providing the finalized version of iOS 4.3 to developers to prepare for its March 11 rollout. IOS 4.3 will be made available for the iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4 (GSM), iPod touch 3G/iPod touch 4G, and iPad/iPad 2. Users of the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 will have to wait a bit longer for the update.

IOS 4.3 bring a number of new features including: 

  • GSM-based iPhones will get the 5-device Wi-Fi Personal Hotspot functionality that was added for CDMA iPhone 4s.
  • Improved AirPlay functionality (third-party apps can support AirPlay) opens up over-the-air multimedia streaming from your iOS devices to your HDTV. AirPlay will also allow you to stream pics/movies from the Photos app.
  • Mobile Safari performance has been improved with a new Nitro JavaScript engine (up to 2x performance increase).
  • ITunes Home Sharing allows you to share your entire iTunes Library (Mac or PC) to any iOS device wirelessly. 
  • The ability to use the switch on the side of the iPad to change toggle orientation lock or as a mute switch.

Developers can grab iOS 4.3 Gold Master here. Everyone else will have to wait until March 11 or search torrent sites for the ISPW file.

iOS 4.3 is now available to download from within iTunes for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

I understand your gripe, and all the other comments above.

One thing to bare in mind, when comparing to other products and markets, is that these mobile devices, their hardware specifications and the operating systems that run on them are evolving much more quickly than in others.

When it all settles down, then I would expect devices to have a slightly longer lifespan, but for now, at least Apple are driving the market on still.

Maybe it's a shame that Apple aren't in the games console market? They'd probably release a new model every couple of years and people would buy it, forcing MS and Sony to keep up by releasing new version faster than they would like too. Then again, maybe it's such a good idea :o)

What I want to know is what keeps the CDMA iPhone 4 on Verizon from getting this update right now.
