Apple Releases iOS 4.3 to Developers

By Cindy Waxer March 04, 2011

Members of Apple’s iOS Developer Program were given a sneak peek of the iOS 4.3, which is scheduled for release next week.

Enhancements include AirPlay, the wireless technology that lets users stream content from their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV. In addition to music, movies, and photos, AirPlay now streams video from your Photos app. For example, you could shoot a home video of your dog and instantly share it with everyone in the room. Photos can also be turned into a slideshow with a variety of themes to select from.

Another modification: OS 4.3 adds iTunes Home Sharing to iOS devices like the iPad 2. This features lets users stream their iTunes library from a Mac or PC to an iOS device, including podcasts, audiobooks and music.

As reported by TechZone360.com, yesterday Apple releasediPad 2 – a newly designed tablet that’s 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter than the original iPad. There’s still the same 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen and up to 10 hours of battery life. But the iPad 2 also features Apple’s new dual-core A5 processor for super-fast performance. 

Another impressive addition to the iPad’s new incarnation: two cameras — a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime and Photo Booth and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video.

So far, iPad 2 is available in black or white, features models that run on AT&T’s and Verizon’s 3G networks, and introduces its Smart Cover in a range of colors. iPad 2 will be available on March 11, in the U.S. through the Apple online store, Apple retail stores, and select Apple authorized resellers.
