Hands-on With iOS 4.3

by Avinash Saxena
With iOS 4.3 set to arrive by the end of the week (perhaps in the next few hours), we know that many of you are going to be turning to iTunes to update your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
Mashable has already covered the big new features in iOS 4.3, namely the introduction of the mobile hotspot for carriers other than Verizon and iTunes Home Sharing. Cosmetically, little has changed from iOS 4.2
Still, there are a few new features and surprises for iOS diehards. This is an evolutionary release but the upgrades and improvements, especially with the web browser, are much appreciated. We love the Home Sharing feature, and it makes accessing content from a Mac or PC easy. Watching movies purchased in iTunes or listening to playlists or browsing downloaded podcasts from an iOS device over a local network is a real treat and the surprise highlight of this release.
Apple TV 2 owners now have more options with AirPlay, but the real impact of those changes will come in the next few weeks as developers add or update features within their applications.
