Apple Seeds iOS 4.3 Beta 3 To Developers

Today, Apple seeded the third beta release (8F5166b) of iOS 4.3 for iPhone 3GS/4, iPad, and iPod touch 3rd/4th generation. As many know, iOS 4.3 is the anticipated release of the next iOS firmware rumored to be due in March 2011.

iOS 4.3 is also expected to bring “Personal Hotspot” to the iPhone, as we saw on the Verizon iPhone 4 with iOS 4.2.5.

Since iOS 4.3 beta 1, there have been some minor changes in iOS 4.3. Those changes are listed below:

  • Four or five finger pinch for the Home Screen (iPad)
  • New SMS alert intervals (iPhone 4)
  • Personal Hotspot for iPhone (iPhone 4)
  • New FaceTime icon for iPod touch (fourth-generation iPod touch)
  • Ability to delete apps during the download process
  • Enhanced support for AirPlay video streaming

We will update this as the story develops.
