Apple release iOS 4.3 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

Latest Apple mobile OS lands with Wi-Fi hotspots

The latest software update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch has been officially released by Apple as iDevice users can now download iOS 4.3 from their iTunes accounts.

The updated mobile operating system, which went live yesterday evening, will begin shipping pre-installed on devices tomorrow as the Apple iPad 2 hits stores across the US ahead of a UK arrival in two weeks time on March 25th.

Downloadable via the latest version of iTunes, iOS users who sync their devices to their Mac or PCs will get a feast of new features that includes the ability to customise the side-lock come mute switch on the Apple tablet as well as adding support for the recently announced HDMI video adapter, unveiled alongside the second-generation iPad.

The biggest feature draw of the iOS 4.3 software update, however, is the ability to turn your iDevice into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot with up to five further devices able to access the internet via the single 3G to Wi-Fi conversion point. Other new additions to iOS 4.3 include increased AirPlay features that allow users to stream content direct from third party apps to the latest edition Apple TV box and compatible speakers.
