I was so surprised when I heard that Apple released the iOS4.3 and introduced it to the public 2 days before its scheduled release. The iOS4.3 is compatible with Apple’s latest devices like the iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and the 3rd and 4th generation of the iPod touch.
Upon hearing the release of iOS4.3, I immediately updated my Apple device by clicking on the “Check for Update Button” on iTunes. The update includes a handful of enhancements and new applications like AirPlay Viideo, iTunes Home Sharing, and Personal HotSpot.
The Wider Coverage Personal HotSpot
The Personal HotSpot lets me share the data that are stored on my iPhone 4 to five other devices by using 3 Wi-Fi, 3 Bluetooth and 1 USB connection.
Broader iTunes Home Sharing
By using this new application, I can easily share the contents of my iTunes library from a Mac or PC to my iPhone. But this requires iTunes 10.2 for compatibility in sharing.
New and Improved AirPlay Features
With the new AirPlay, I can play videos using photo applications like the Camera Roll Album, iTunes Previews, Enabled Third Party Apps, and websites found on Apple TV. I can use the different transitions on the Apple TV for slideshows.
The Faster Apple Nitro Java Script
The new engine enables me to enjoy faster performance especially in Safari.
The Advanced Apple Digital AV Adapter
I can view video app, iPod app, YouTube, Photos, Safari, Keynote and enabled third party apps on HDMI display using 720p HD.
Push for comments, requests, and post and like songs that are on the Now Playing Screen. It has Parental Control so that kids would only view age-appropriate sites and videos.
The Message Setting could be set in a number of times to alert you if there is an unread message. The iPad’s Side Switch Setting could lock the screen rotation or mute the notifications and sound effects.
The New Conference Call Dialing
A single tap conference call could be made but a pause is made to send a passcode for your security.
