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.

RE: 2g ipod touch

I own an ipod touch 2g and I'd have to say I am greatly disappointed having finally run afoul of apples forced upgrade policy.

5 years for a gadget I would agree should be a reasonable minimum for support.

Still all I can do is vote with my dollars and this is exactly what I will be doing. There won't be another ipod touch or apple product on my purchase list going forward.

I had briefly considered an iphone 4 when they were first announced.(before the antenna problems came to light and put me off on getting one.) But in all honesty after spending some time using an android device I can say for certain my upcoming all in one music player / phone will without a doubt be an android unit.

I for one welcome our new android overlords.
