The next major iteration of iOS, 4.3, has been sent out to developers, and some juicy details have already leaked out. According to Engadget, the iOS 4.3 OS lists two editions of the fourth-generation iPhone that the software will support, and three second-generation iPads. The most likely explanation for these five device listings is the CDMA and GSM versions of the iPhone 4 and iPad — CDMA being the network standard used by some US carriers — while the Wi-Fi-only iPad explains the third tablet listing.
No big surprises there then? Not really, but it shows that Apple will still keep the 3G and non-3G iterations of the iPad.
Boy Genius Report also writes that the Photo Booth and iLife software suites will come to iOS around the time that iOS 4.3 lands. iLife comprises iPhoto, music-creation software GarageBand and iMovie, which is already available for iPhone 4s. Photo Booth is a “fun” photo app that lets you create photo booth-style images with your front camera, rumoured to be one of the big changes in the iPad 2.
