Apple finalises first iOS 4.3 update

Firmware revision imminent?

High performance access to file storage

Apple will update iOS 4.3 to 4.3.1 within a week or two, it has been claimed.

No prizes for spotting that it'll be a relatively minor release - a fact highlighted by the bug-fix list posted by BGR.

The new firmware contains only two notable tweaks: new baseband code for the iPad and iPhone 3GS, and "fixed iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability".

The latter will send hackers scurrying back to their code, undoubtedly to find an alternative to the particular hole Apple seems now to have patched. iOS 4.3 was cracked last week.

BGR's source would seem to be someone within Apple. iOS update details usually come from developers, but Apple has yet to post a pre-release version of iOS 4.3.1 to third-party coders, we hear. ®
