by on March 2nd, 2011

During the iPad 2 event this morning, Apple announced the upcoming release of iOS 4.3. The upcoming firmware, due March 11 for iPhone (GSM), iPad, and 3rd/4th generation iPod touch, features numerous features and enhancements.

For all supported iOS devices, iOS 4.3 brings increased Safari performance with a new Nitro JavaScript engine. The firmware is further enabling iTunes home sharing which allows users to get at all of their content directly over WiFi.

The new firmware also features AirPlay improvements which enables users to share photos by further making user of built-in slide show options. Also with iOS 4.3, apps from the Store and even websites can do video or audio.

iOS 4.3, as seen in the iOS 4.3 betas, also introduced a software toggle for the iPad’s side button. The toggle now turns the iPad side button into a rotation lock or mute switch.

With the debut of front and back facing cameras on the iPad 2, Apple also released Photo Booth for iPad. The software is just as powerful as the Mac client and allows users to modify the photo settings by just tapping.

Also with the cameras, FaceTime is now available on iPad 2. This now enables an iPad 2 to FaceTime between other iPad 2 devices, iPod touch, iPhone, and Mac.
