Apple iOS 4.3 update to go live 6pm GMT today?

Upcoming iOS update due earlier than expected

The latest update to Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 4.3, is expected to launch today as rumours circulate around the imminent update.

The rumours, which come courtesy of tech blog BGR, suggest a “source” has revealed the eagerly awaited iOS release will touch down at 10am PT, 6pm here in the UK, ahead of arriving preinstalled on the iPad 2 when the second-gen tablet touches down in the States this Friday, March 11th.

Whilst unsurprisingly unconfirmed by Apple, an iOS 4.3 release today would see iDevice users given the opportunity to update to the OS and get used to its new features before it starts rolling out of stores already installed on the latest hardware.

iOS 4.3’s killer feature, one which iPhone users have long been awaiting, will see user’s devices transformed into personal hotspot makers. According to the BGR source, the number of devices able to be supported by the iOS 4.3 kit will be set a three with networks able to upgrade this to five. iOS users looking to upgrade will need to ensure their devices are backed up and their computers are running the latest version of iTunes.

Will we really see iOS 4.3 touchdown later today? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds and share your thoughts on the new OS features. While you wait iOS 4.3 why not take a look at our hands-on video with the iPad 2.
