Apple iOS 4.3 beta hits devs with personal hotspots

iPad to add new multitouch gesture controls

Following the news that the upcoming iOS 4.3 software release would transform user’s iPhones into personal hotspot creators, the beta edition of Apple’s next generation mobile operating system has touched down with developers.

Confirming that the iPhone will soon be able to convert it’s 3G reception into a personal wireless hotspot network enabling additional devices to get online, beta receiving developers have outlined a bevy of new features set to touch down with the imminent iOS update.

Not limited to the iPhone iOS 4.3 will find its way to the beloved tablets of iPad owners. Most exciting addition to the iPad’s bag of tricks will be the introduction of multitouch gesture controls that will enable a feast of new motion commands with four and five finger pinch, swipe and flick gestures all supported.

On a lighter note, the iPhone’s video camera is to receive a live on-screen effects overhaul with mock thermal imaging, Kaleidoscope, Light Tunnel and X-ray effects all added to spice up your handset-shot footage. Larger advertisements, AirPlay support for third-party apps and a redesigned FaceTime icon are also set to land in iOS version 4.3.

Although a precise release date has yet to be made public, widespread developer distribution would suggest iOS 4.3 will be made publicly available in a few short weeks, perhaps coinciding with the unveiling of the much mooted iPad 2.
