The latest version of Apple's operating system available for download
The latest version of Apple's operating system for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is now available for download.
The new iOS 4.3 patches several vulnerabilities, particularly in the Safari web browser which now gets an upgraded Webkit engine.
On iPhone 4's that have supported network options, the iOS 4.3 allows users to create a personal hotspot that turns their handset into a Wi-Fi hub.
According to Apple, it enables up to five devices to be connected simultaneously to the phone. Connectivity options can include WiFi, Bluetooth and USB in any combination.
On iPads, the new OS will serve as a digital AV adapter allowing streaming of HD 720p content from supported applications such as Videos, Keynote, Iphoto, Youtube and Safari on to a bigger high-definition display.
Apple's latest iPad2, which was unveiled by the company's boss Steve Jobs earlier, will come with built-in iOS 4.3.
