iOS 4.3: A Breakdown of the Features and Enhancements for the iPhone

The long-awaited iOS 4.3 is out and many people are raving about the new capabilities this platform adds to the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. Have you wanted to surf the internet faster on your iPhone 3G or 3GS? How about have the ability to play your iTunes library from any device on your Wi-Fi network, anywhere in the house? The following article will go through this and many more features and enhancements that iOS 4.3 provices for your Apple device.

The new iOS expands many capabilities; the most blogged about being enhanced JavaScript processing with JavaScript 2.0. Many iPhone 3G and 3GS users have been complaining about the gradual obsoletion of their device due to software upgrades that require more processor speed. One of the largest issues is surfing the internet and being "frozen out" due to processor overload. This new JavaScript reader allows the processor to sift through complex command lines and simplify the processing demand for each page loaded.

The next major feature is the all home wi-fi capability. Whether you are on an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, desktop, or laptop, users can now play any song from any playlist on their device just by making sure they are all on the same wireless network. This makes it easy to design a party mix in one room and play it in the living room with your iPhone. This makes music listening much less of a hassle with the current copyright laws for same home users.

An expansion of the 4.2 platform now allows users to use the MobileMe software and iOS 4.3 to wipe their iPhone (or iPod/iPad) or display a message stating how to get their device back to them if they lose it. An even cooler part of this combination is the ability to actually track the device while it is on. The would be thief who forgets to turn it off can now be reported to the police and your phone can be recovered. The possibilities are endless with this technology. The future being a rather big brother effect of potentially tracking all users whereabouts. This is not too far from what the looped type apps are already doing.

iOS 4.3 adds many other features that are more discrete than the ones described above; yet with each update, it seems like the iOS allows a user to be that much more satisfied with their already revolutionary devices. The next major upgrade will likely be iOS 5.0 which will probably release with the iPhone 5.
