  • iOS 4.3 Goes Public : Available Now in iTunes


    If you haven't been following this, iOS 4.3 was released today as expected, an early release before the launch of the iPad 2.

    If you like your jailbreak, don't update to iOS 4.3 at this time. Don't forget to tell any newb friends to not "let their girlfriend accidentally press the update button". Back up your SHSH Blobs manually for even more re-assurance. The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella

      So how is the Safari performance? Is it faster?

      Was Location Services grouped with Airplane Mode/Wi-Fi/Notifications within the Settings app before? I don't recall seeing it there before.

      @saunupe1911 - I have not noticed much of a difference so far (on wi-fi) with full sites. Mobile sites seem to be a fraction faster than before.

      Location Services used to be under Network and Bluetooth in the general tab.

      in all seriousness i think he meant 3 wifi, 1 bluetooth, and 1 USB.
      It wasn't his math that was wrong it was a problem with his inability to understand the phrase 'up to 5'.

      Works fine for me.

      AirPlay? How do you enable? I've got it turned on in iTunes and logged in on phone and MacBook(s). What am I missing?

      airplay only works with airplay devices like appletv and the airport express.

      Enable home sharing in the advanced tab in iTunes. (after which you can enable photo sharing in the same tab). Then enable home sharing on your idevice via apples remote app.

      I haven't noticed anything huge. Maybe a bit. But it should be noticeably faster since I sacrificed my jailbreak that was running download manager and a few other plug ins. But it's not.

      I know this comment has been over exposed, but it still makes me smile that the ability to assign a button a particular function makes the short list of 'new features'.

      That's iPad 2 only. iPad 2 launches on Friday. And it was prominently featured in their iPad 2 presentation so I'm sure it'll be there. No worries Bro Montana

      Actually you can. Froyo has it built in. Not all of us on this site are from the US. US Android phones have custom roms from networks. Nexus S has wifi hotspot.
      My Galaxy S i9000 can share 3G to 5 devices over wifi. Normal Samsung Froyo 2.2.1 ROM. I don't want to keep it just for it to be used as a wifi hotspot though.

      I'm still on 4.0.1 I think >_<
