ITunes Home Sharing

iTunes Home Sharing is a big improvement to the iPad OS 4.3 Update system. This means you can play your whole iTunes library no matter where you are in the house. It works by connecting the devices over a Wi-Fi network and accessing the content from your Mac or PC.


The iOS 4.3 update brings improvements to Airplay, the function that lets you stream music throughout the home without wires. The upgrade means that you can now stream videos from the Photos app, and view AirPlay enabled apps and websites on the big screen.

Improved Safari Performance

Any browsing performance is always welcomed with every upgrade, and Apple states that iOS 4.3 will bring a much more responsive internet surfing experience, running JavaScript up to twice as fast as with iOS 4.2.2 and loading interactive features much quicker.

iPad Orientation Switch

The side switch on the iPad previously only worked to mute the device, but iOS 4.3 now adds the option to allow users to choose whether they want it as a mute switch, or as a way of locking the orientation of the screen.

Personal Hotspots

This is an update to iPhone 4 users: a feature that can turn the iPhone into a Wi-Fi access point for other Wi-Fi devices. However, this all depends on whether your carrier supports the feature. A maximum of three Wi-Fi devices can be connected at any one time.

iOS 4.3 And the iPad 2

The iPad 2 brings with it a new dual-core processor, meaning that everything will be faster than it was before. And with the new iPad OS 4.3 operating system released at the same time as the iPad 2, you can be sure that, together with iPad OS 4.3 Update, they will noticeably improve the performance of the device.
