Download iOS 4.3 Beta 1 To Receive Numerous Features Including Mobile Hotspot Support
Days after the Verizon iPhone 4 was launched, Apple has begun pushing iOS 4.3 Beta 1 to the developers who can now test the software and look for bugs as well as improve their apps so that they users won’t encounter any problems when updating.
We’re less concerned about that as the devs will surely make a great job in optimizing their apps so let’s look at the functions added by Apple. The first thing that strikes us is the 3G mobile hotspot support which is coming to all iPhones, however, the carrier will have to enable it which will mean that AT&T or Verizon might charge you for it.
If you download iOS 4.3 then you will also receive AirPlay support for 3rd party apps. Previously AirPlay was available only for Apple apps except for the Photos app, however, this one supports Apple TV streaming as of iOS 4.3. Anyway, from now on you will be able to send videos to your Apple TV using your own app.
iOS 4.3 also comes packed with better camera shutter sound, bigger Update menu icons in App Store, better iPad multitasking multitouch gestures which will allow users to swipe up to show the multitasking bar, and full-screen iPad iAd banners which are not cool at all.
