iOS SDK 4.3 GM Seed Available: Download Now

By Updated on

Apple does not waste any time, as the iOS SDK 4.3 GM seed is now available and is ready for download. This means that developers will have their hands on the SDK more than a week before iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users. We hope that it will not be too long before we get to find out just how good those new features really are, no doubt developers will inform us soon.

We already know about some of the new features in iOS 4.3, such as iTunes Home Sharing, Nitro JavaScript engine and much more, which you can read in more detail on Alan Ng’s article. This SDK GM Seed has been released now to make certain that developer’s apps will work with iOS 4.3, and you can be certain that a day or two after March 11, 2011 you will start to see updates appear for your apps.

For those of you who will be taking possession of the new iPad 2 and transfer your back-up settings from your current iPad, you need to make certain that you update those apps, just so they can take full advantage of that A5 dual-core processor from Apple. More details on this chip can be seen on my previous post here.

So if you want to be ready, download the SDK and then submit your apps once you have made the changes. Other than the new processor, the app also needs to offer support for the two cameras and the gyroscope. Next week will be a big day for most iOS users, so best get backing up soon.

Will you download iOS 4.3 on day one or wait until the dust settles?
