Hot news covering the new iOS 4.3 update is here readers, say hello to the new iOS 4.3 beta 8FS148b build, this new update comes with an array of new features and must say we are very excited at this given time.

The new iOS 4.3 beta 8FS148b build is only available to app developers of the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, there are many sites on the web that have information of the new features but we will stick with MacStories blogs and Italian Blog iSpazio because they have both compiled a list for us to feast on, there are 12 new features that should put you on the edge of your seat for a little while until public release.

As you may know by now the Verizon iPhone 4 CDMA version was announced a couple of days ago and it has the new 3G mobile hotspot feature that allows users to connect up to five devices to it, well apparently the new iOS 4.3 will have this feature on GSM Apple versions.

iSpazio has found that the new software update will bring many new camera effects on the iPhone that should make FaceTime a better experience, new camera features will include: Thermal Camera, X-Ray, Turbine, Kaleidoscope, Collapse, Tunnel of light, Enlarge and Normal.

The Apple iPad will gain better multi-touch gestures, these new features will include: Swipe upwards to show multi-tasking options, Screen response to tapping with more than 4-5 fingers and Swipe left or right for switching between open apps.

Looking a little more into the new iOS 4.3 beta build of the software TechTree reports that it will feature: New Noteworthy fonts for iPad, SMS Alert Tone repetition up to 10 Times and AirPlay access to third-party applications for multi-media streaming. Apparently support for the iPhone 3G will be dropped with this new update.
