Apple announced iOS 4.3 today, with a focus on improved JavaScript rendering, iTunes Home Sharing to stream media from your computer to your iDevice, AirPlay improvements, and a bunch of
other good stuff. First off, JavaScript rendering in Safari is now twice as fast. We measured how in dual-core phones and tablets, like in the LG Optimus 2X, JavaScript processing speeds were dramatically improved.
The same thing now goes for the dual-core iPad 2,
so no surprise here. As for Adobe Flash - nah,
forget it. We'll now take advantage of something called iTunes Home Sharing, which basically is streaming multimedia content from your iTunes library on
your computer (Mac or PC) via your home wireless
network to your iPad or iPhone. AirPlay has also received an update, now able to stream home movies from your Photos app via
Apple TV, and even from AirPlay-enabled websites. With iOS 4.3 you can now share your GSM iPhone
4's internet connection with your iPad too - Personal Hotspot for up to five devices is finally here, but we bet AT&T will still charge. Yeah, no need to tell you this 4.3 update is only for GSM
iPhones, Verizon's crop will have to wait, but it has
the function anyway in its own version of the iOS
software. The PhotoBooth camera software is now standard on the iPad 2, and the Apple folk demoed up to 9
live video streams with different effects like
kaleidoscope or thermal vision, that can appear on
the tablet's screen at once. The list goes on with iMovie (still $4.99, coming March 11th in the App Store) for iOS with a number of new features for
serious video editing, as well as GarageBand, which will be available for the tablet now in the App
Store, tailored to the bigger screen experience. PhotoBooth camera software. Image courtesy of PCMag Of course, since we now have two cameras on the
iPad 2, iOS 4.3, which seems to be tailored as a
tablet version before anything else, supports
FaceTime through the VGA front camera , while the rear one shoots HD video still, no Full HD for you. All in all, incremental updates, but wrapped up
beautifully, and everything seemed fluid and
functional. What do you think?
