iOS 4.3

It has been just over 24 hours that Apple released the highly anticipated iOS 4.2.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and we already have MacStories reporting that Apple is planning to release iOS 4.3 in mid-December.

MacStories claims that according to a “reliable source†iOS 4.3 will include bug fixes. It might also address issues found in AirPlay feature introduced in iOS 4.2.1.

According to MacStories, Apple was apparently planning to release iOS 4.3 as early as December 13th but that was before the release of iOS 4.2.1 was delayed due to some unexpected bugs just before the final version was released.

MacStorires reports:

Here’s what we heard from a reliable source: when Apple didn’t know about the WiFi issues in the GM seed of iOS 4.2, the OS was scheduled to be released weeks before Nov. 22nd. Apple found out about the WiFi issues, released a second GM build and iOS 4.2 came out yesterday. It came out in November, but it should have been out in the first half of November. Anyway, before the WiFi issues were discovered, Apple was already planning to release a new build of iOS 4.x in mid-December. Most specifically, they were planning for an iOS 4.3 release on December 13th, which is a Monday.

Our source tells us it is unclear whether the “extra time” that was required to ship iOS 4.2 (actually, it’s iOS 4.2.1) will cause a delay for the rumored release of iOS 4.3 on December 13th or not. iOS 4.3 should, however, include bug fixes and maintenance of the code. It’s likely that 4.3 will also address the initial issues found in AirPlay, but we can’t confirm this just yet.

According to MacStories source, iOS 4.3 might also add support for the recurring subscription functionality that is required for The Daily – the iPad-only newspaper.

Do you think Apple will release iOS 4.3 in December? What would you like to see in iOS 4.3 software update? Tell us in the comments section below.
