4.3 Launched Early: My Experience
So what's new??? Nothing really in my opinion. The gestures are not in 4.3 which is something I was looking forward to. Apple has given users a choice for the side switch on the IPad(volume mute, or orientation lock), which is good if you are watching a movie in bed and don't want your movie to keep rotating. Mobile Hotspot is a good plus for me since my job does not have wifi. Also if I am out and I have a document on my iPad that I forgot to email to someone I can just turn on Mobile Hotspot and shoot them the email. I called AT&T as soon as I got the update to switch from a 2GB plan to a 4GB plan so I can tether my little heart away. I can't wait to go to work to try out this new feature. Also, AirPlay is better with the new upgrade. Videos from my camera roll play in good quality through my AppleTv, which is something I really was looking forward to. I am waiting to see which third-party apps are going to start using AirPlay in the future.
Other than those features I listed I don't see much of a difference. That is not a real problem for me since the upgrade was FREE and I LOVED my IPad before the upgrade. If anyone else knows of any other features please leave it in a comment.
