Written By Sam on 13 January 2011

Apple has released iOS 4.3 Beta to developers. iOS SDK 4.3 beta offers many new features including the ability to stream video to Apple TV using AirPlay, iAd full screen banners and HTTP Live Streaming statistics. So if you are a registered Apple developer then you can download iOS 4.3 beta build 8F5148b for your iDevice from the Apple Developer Center.

Features in iOS 4.3 Beta


Stream video from your app to a widescreen TV using new Media Player APIs that support AirPlay video. You can also update your web content to support AirPlay.

iAd Full Screen Banners

iAd full screen banners grab the attention of users by taking advantage of the large screen of iPad to launch an immersive, interactive iAd experience. This new banner format is easy to implement. And Apple sells and serves the ads to your app while you collect 60% of the advertising revenue generated.

HTTP Live Streaming Statistics

Track the popularity of your streams and measure their performance. New AVFoundation APIs allow you to track information including how many people are watching your videos, how long they’re watching them, and performance metrics like observed bitrate and number of dropped frames. Use these statistics to fine tune your authoring process and deliver optimized content to your users.

Test Multi-Touch Gestures for iPad

This beta release contains a preview of new Multi-Touch gestures for iPad. You can use four or five fingers to pinch to the Home Screen; swipe up to reveal the multitasking bar; and swipe left or right between apps.

Apart from the above features, Personal Hotspot is also present in this iOS 4.3 update. You can also choose if the side switch on your iPad mutes, or locks the iPad’s orientation.
