iOS 4.3 for the iPhone is delivered a couple days earlier than anticipated
Well that surely didn’t take too long because Apple gave the thumbs up for iOS 4.3 after we heard that it was going to become available relatively soon – rather than its anticipated March 11th release date.

With that said, you can connect your iPhone to iTunes and begin downloading the latest version of the platform where you’ll them have the opportunity of experiencing first-hand all the new exciting set of features it has to offer. Specifically, it host things like mobile hotspot functionality, faster Safari performance, new AirPlay features, and the ability of getting HD video out using the Apple Digital AV adapter.

Furthermore, it also includes some of the customary set of bug fixes that will iron out the some of the kinks with the platform. Overall, it’s definitely an exciting new update that will get you all giddy while you wait for it to install on your iPhone or iPod touch.

Just finished updating my ipad. My iphone4 is now updating as I type. There's a noticeable faster load speed of web pages with safari on my ipad. I only have two improvements that I look forward to the 4.3 update, and they're the faster safari and the hotspot feature on the iphone. Love it :)

yeah I agree with you JeffdaBeat, iOS totally sucks and so does everything Apple. And you're right about Steve Jobs being an arrogant prick who blames his customers for holding their phones wrong instead of taking accountability for his company's mistake. It's just so damn irritating that they want to control every aspect of YOUR phone down to notification sounds and ringtones! Also we need to be ready for tiered data pricing because everyone will be switching to it ;-)

Im pretty sure he didnt say anything about steve jobs... and i think there is more customization in cydia then there is on android... can u get wp7 theme that is actually good? well i can with my iphone 4 because customization means something more than live wallpapers... oh and ya the iphone was such a mistake because being the number one selling phone ever is just so horrible...

Thanks Lucas, it seems you completely missed the sign that said "don't feed the trolls" And what's worse is he labeled himself a troll.

lololololol thanks clevername. Someone finally gets me! Oh, and Lucas, even stock android has more customization than cydia. But if you want to compare apples to apples then you would have to compare cydia to a custom rom like cyanogen mod. And if you did...cyanogen mod destroys cydia! I'm surprised people even use cydia anymore, I thought they already switched to Android where the real development community is...

Yeah I was disappointed when I tried to update my iphone and it said I already had the current version. It should be out soon though. Better notifications should arrive in iOS 5.0.

Well remember they may prioritize the GSM version because it's the model used around the world. The CDMA software may come at a later point.

well the cdma pretty much has everything already...

Just the mobile hotspot. Not the extra AirPlay features or hdmi out or the all important nitro JavaScript boost for safari. Vzw iPhone should get this soon. I may be wrong but I think a totally different version is needed for CDMA.

4.2.6 actually. Released simultaneously to fix a small bug. Thumbs up anyway though.

Bummer. I really was looking forward to the iOS 4.3 update's hotspot feature. Turns out that I would have to change my unlimited data plan to their 4gb data plan which will cost $45 with the hotspot feature. Not going to work for me :(

PhoneArena, there are 3 mistakes that jump at you in this short article! Why don't you do something about it?? Shame....

I'm going to update as soon as I get home. Can't wait to try the airplay.

Verizon users are at 4.2.6 not 4.3, if there is a difference it's not really stated anywhere. I guess we aren't apples favorites.

it would be good if they updated if u can install themes instead of jailbreaking ur iDevices. also with ipod touch update the blooody thing so it can show they %battery life.
