Early Delivery of iOS 4.3

The much expected iOS 4.3 was available for download this morning, 2 days earlier than promised.

The upgrade was fast and smooth. Among the few added features, the one most looked forward to is the “Personal Hotspot” (iPhone 4 only, sorry) that can turn the iPhone into a WiFi access point using the iPhone’s 3G bandwidth. This also worked well from my iPhone 4. The speed was not bad (1 to 2 MB bandwidth). I had only got 2 iOS devices at hand (iPad and iPod Touch) and they could be connected swiftly through the Hotspot to the Internet  simultaneously.

Another useful feature (for me) should be the enhancement of the “Airplay” capability, which would allow 3rd party apps to stream video to the TV via appropriate means, such as the Apple TV. I can only try this out at home tonight.
