iOS 4.3 released for iPhone/iPod/iPad

iphone ios 4_3

iOS 4.3 has been released (finally) after rumor circulated that it was supposed to be released on Valentine’s Day. The latest update adds a personal hotspot (to share iPhone 4 data connection with up to 5 devices – meaning you can use your iPhone as a “modem” with your notebook, iPad, macbook, and other devices at the same time, wirelessly) and also a few other features. So click on that “Check for Update” button on your iTunes after you hook your device up.

Unfortunately, no multi gestures for iPad, bah!
