iOS 4.3 update to go live early?

Last week we got official news about Apple’s iOS 4.3 update, and at the time were given a date of March 11 for the release of the update. We are now getting rumors we may see it later today.

The report by Jonathan S.Geller over at BGR who are normally pretty accurate in getting scoops from inside the Cupertino Campus, is saying the update could go live at 10am Pacific time. This is 6pm UK time, and comes three days earlier then the launch date which was given by Steve Jobs at last week’s iPad 2 event.

They are also reporting another bit of news about the Apple’s new personal hotspot feature. All the talk before was the fact that this would only support three devices, unlike other platforms supporting five. BGR have been told that the default setting is indeed three devices, but if a carrier requests more it can be ramped up to support five devices.

This early update does make sense as it will give Apple a couple of days to deal with the extra network traffic, and support calls an update can bring before the iPad 2 is launched with the software already built in.

Do you think we will see the iOS 4.2 update today?

    I hope so. Been looking forward to it. Also, that's last sentence should say 4.3 not 4.2. Haha
