  • iOS 4.3 Beta 3 Released To Developers


    Right on schedule, Apple has release iOS 4.3 Beta 3 to Developers, as per its usual two week timeline.

    The release is dubbed as Build 8F5166b, and is available for the iPad, iPhone 4 and 3GS, and 3rd/4th gen iPod touch, and of course a separate version for the Apple TV 2.

    So what exactly are we looking forward to here? Well for one, the personal Wi-Fi hotspot functionality is a hot topic, as well as the AirPlay support for video and music streaming. It is also rumored that there will finally be the ability to change how the toggle switch acts on the iPad.

    App Advice has stated that iOS 4.3 betas have actually added the ability to cancel downloading apps and even delete them even if it's in the middle of downloading. If that app you want is way too large to download over 3G, simply cancel it and take care of it later on WiFi. This feature is actually included in Beta 1 and 2 as well.

That and gets completely rid of the asinine and completely infuriating notifications. Until then, I'm staying where I'm at unless a verbose untethered boot comes for 4.3!
      I 2nd that

      Ok... but, if the wifi option is unlocked WITH the tethering option, then you would not longer have a need for MyWi (therefore eliminating further development by default, nobody will pay $20 for something that's built-in.)

      That's why I ask, because it could shake things up a bit, not to mention change how our "tether-tweaks" function on a base level. We may get an untethered JB for 4.3, and upgrade all happy like, only to discover that our tweaks don't work any longer.

      Interesting to watch, as I said. You know there's going to be a load of people who jump the gun, unprepared, and go "OH! CRAP!!!!"

      4.3 will be released and there still won't be an untethered jb for 4.2.1. What will be the excuse at that point? Don't want to burn a jb while iOS 4.5 is in beta?

      I think apple has gotten hip to that fear which is why they keep pushing betas so frequently and have held back on releasing too many "big" feature updates at once.

      Dev Team needs to throw down the gauntlet and get back in front. Right now they are hiding.

      The lock rotation option and multitasking gestures would be only reason to go iOS 4.3for iPad IMHO

      same here, ill only upgrade when the untethered jailbreak comes out. but im definitely sticking with MiWi since i have an unlimited data plan anyway. but i cant wait to see if the toggle switch is what its hoped to be
