Apple Releases iOS 4.3 for iPhone, iPod, iPad... What are You Waiting For?

Well the latest release of the Apple mobile OS is now available... and it's ahead of schedule.  I'm updating my iPad as I type this and then my iPod Touch will follow.  I love when companies actually get things out early.  Now here's hoping it's right... not like my Samsung Epic 4G update 2 weeks ago that basically ate my phone and I'm still fighting...
Anyway, Apple has a page devoted to the update that is actually easy to find this time... unlike iOS 4.2.
The download is 596.9MB (ack, 6/10 of a gig!) so make sure you've got a good broadband connection before starting this one.  Also the servers seem pretty jammed currently so the download is taking a while.
The main points are:
  • Airplay Enhancements
  • An upgraded Safari browser
  • iTunes Home Sharing
  • Customize the iPad Side Switch to Mute or Lock Screen Rotation
  • Personal Hotspot for iPhone 4

My biggest personal interest is the faster browser.  Hopefully the download will be worth it...
