Well, here’s quite an interesting Rumor of the Day – and happily it’s one that can be verified, or not, within just a few hours. BGR has heard that Apple will release iOS 4.3 – the latest update to the iPad and iPhone operating system – at 1:00 PM Eastern today.
That would be three full days ahead of the announced release date of March 11 (same as the iPad 2).
BGR’s source also offered them information on the new personal hotspot feature for iPhone 4:
There has been a lot of talk surrounding Apple’s personal hotspot feature, specifically it’s capability of only supporting 3 wireless connections (as opposed to 5 like many other devices). Well, we have been told it’s all left to the carrier to decide. If a carrier requests it, five devices will be supported, but by default, it’s three.
iOS 4.3 brings a few nice new features to the iPad – including better / faster Safari performance, iTunes home sharing, AirPlay support for 3rd party apps, and of course the ability to get the rotation lock back on its original external button.
I’ll definitely be checking iTunes for this update at midday.
