    After yesterday’s false start, I can happily report what you all probably know anyway, that iOS 4.3 is here, two days ahead of schedule! The update is compatible with the iPhone 4 (GSM), iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch (4th and 3rd gen). It seems to be ready to go all across the world, without the usual wait for it to roll out, as here in the UK it became available immediately at 6PM (10AM Pacific Time), so hopefully that’s the case worldwide. By now everyone will be familiar with much of what iOS 4.3 has to offer, but just to recap, it offers a personal hotspot facility for the iPhone 4, iTunes Home Sharing, which enables you to play music, films and TV from a shared iTunes library on a Mac or PC, as well as new AirPlay features, including the ability to play videos from the Photos app and slideshows from Photos on Apple TV. Also included in the update is an HD video out facility for use with the new Apple Digital AV Adapter, and new Ping features such as push notifications for comments and follow requests. Possibly the two most important and welcome features of the update are enhanced Safari performance courtesy of the Apple Nitro JavaScript engine, and the changing back of the iPad side-switch setting to give you a choice to either use it as a screen rotation lock (its original purpose) or as a mute switch.

    So there you have it, happy updating!

    Home Sharing is a great feature to the new OS. Also love, love, love having the option for the rocker switch (Mute or Lock Rotation).

    iPhone update done and in and iPad one has just started to extract the file. My iPhone has been restarted for quite a few minutes. All told didn't more than 10 or so minutes to go in. I heard people saying an hour-must be lesser traffic time or something!!

    Done two iPads today... about twenty minutes each without problems. One of them is synched to a Macbook Pro running Windows XP and one to a Gateway with Windows 7 64bit. Both had the most recent iTunes before the download.

    LOL. I didn't think it was too shabby!! Must not be peak times, but hey, 35 minutes for both it is, and that included restarting and syncing as well for them both to literally be ready to be used. US Bill's 40 minutes for the two iPads is pretty darn close too. I know I read somewhere on this forum that it had taken someone's iPad update an hour, so I was all prepared to wait it out and then the iPhone sailed through followed by iPad which was faster. I'm guessing it must be because I was doing so at a later hour.

    My first impression is that the browser is much faster. The rest of the updates are not really interesting for me.

    I agree. Browser on iPad is MUCH faster and having the option to tether my iPhone 4 is great but that's about it for me.
