iOS 4.3 Release Date Hinted at March 2

iOS 4.3 has hit Golden Master stage which means it’s almost ready for launch. When iOS hits this stage, it is common for the public release to follow about a week after. This changed when iOS 4.2 was released due to some WiFi bugs found late in the game, however, it is normal that GM is finalized code.

With the code being finalized, it will now be ready to launch and rumors are hinting that it could be announced alongside the iPad 2 on March 2nd (Wednesday) next week. For those who like to track these things, the build number should be 8F190.

When released, it will bring a few new features to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch which includes a personal wireless hotspot for the iPhone as well as Air Video streaming. The switch on the iPad will also be capable of being customized with a simple setting in the dock which allows you to switch it from an orientation lock to a mute switch… a much requested feature.

On the downside, we hear that the multitouch gestures that appeared on the iPad were for testing purposes only and that they wont be included in the final build. Shame as they were very handy to have.
