  • iTunes 10.2.1 Today, iOS 4.3 Tomorrow?


    Apple has just released iTunes 10.2.1, yes that's right, only 1 week after 10.2. Oddly enough I had to open up the Apple Software Update app to get the update to appear.

    While the release notes state the exact same as they did with iTunes 10.2, we can only imagine that someone forgot something important to include before the release of iOS 4.3 to the public.

    Earlier this morning rumor had it that iOS 4.3 was going to be released today, but after reviewing the buzz and this release of iTunes 10.2.1, it makes much more sense that tomorrow would be more logical, so don't give up hope yet on an early release.

    As always, exercise caution when dealing with new iOS updates.

      Actually, Gestures were taken out of 4.3. It will improve Safari Performance (supposedly up to 2x) and provide sufficient upgrades to AirPlay. iTunes home sharing is now supported on the iPod. It will also give you the ability to customize the switch on the side of your iPad to lock the screen rotation or mute the volume.

      It's called marketing...they want people to buy the newest product....nothing special

      I also find it ironic and hysterical when they join an idevice forum to bash the products/software the site is catered to. After all this is MODmyi isnt it? Lol some people.

      It is, but blogger and news givers long for information, so they will take anything.

      i dont know when i used pda net on my iphone 3g it would heat up a lot and kill the battery and even if its charging it would kill it i could imagine if the reason why they didn't officially add the hot spot feature for the 3gs could be that reason the iphone 4 might just be a bit cooler in the heat department and probably wouldn't kill the battery that much.



      but boy this could be good news my iphone 3g has some well lets say water damage well more like oil damage >.> still works but i feel like its failing might not last another month and i have a ipho *cough* ipod touch and if the dev team aren't bsing again with the unlock for 02.xx.xx again and it comes right after 4.3 it will be heaven.. my lawyer keeps asking me everyday in front of people if i can use it yet... kinda embarrassing

      Not following you on .01. Do you mean 10.2.1? or are your referring 10.2. Like Apple they do a updates for both OSX and PC so the update numbers are the same. But the main reason was just like I had said Windows 7 SP 1 cause issues with iTunes.

      I really don't think people realize the 4.3 hotspot costs extra $$ when mywi doesn't.

      iTunes 10.2 finally honors personalized-installation-server-host and -port settings in preferences. But I wonder why now?
