iOS 4.3 multitasking gestures hacked onto iPhone 3GS [video]

YouTube user antoninygaard seems to have been able to go into iOS 4.3 beta and manually enable the multitasking gestures meant for iPad developer testing (as well as the mute/orientation lock toggle!) We heard Apple was testing them internally but he's got both running on his iPhone 3GS.

We already know Apple won't be giving them to end users for iPad much less iPhone any time soon but check out the video below and let us know what you think. Are the multitasking gestures usable on a screen that small?

Apple testing iOS 4.3 multitouch gestures on iPhone as well?

According to some screenshots BGR received from an Apple source, it looks like might just be testing those currently iOS 4.3 for iPad-only multitouch navigation gestures on special internal iPhones as well.

Now the part about 4 or 5 fingers makes sense on iPad but on the much smaller iPhone screen it... seems a little cramped. BGR thinks their previous no-Home-button iPhone rumor could lead to a Palm Pre-style gesture area instead. Engadget, which believes the screenshots could be genuine, thinks iPhone 4 could have a bigger screen or it could just be placeholder text from iPad and less fingers will be required if it goes primetime.

We are releasing a web-based subscription service with Bondi Digital Publishing that will give users access to every issue of Playboy both past and present. The service will be iPad compatible and will utilize iPad functions.

iOS 4.3 multitasking gestures for iPad won't be enabled for customers

It looks like those dreamy new multitasking navigation gestures in iOS 4.3 -- pinch to return home, swipe sideways between apps, swipe up for the fast app switcher dock -- may not be making it into the release version, as the iOS 4.3 beta 2 notes say:

This feature will not be enabled in iOS 4.3 for customers, but we are providing this preview to gather input on how these gestures work with your apps.

Developers are encouraged to evaluate any existing interactions in their applications for potential sources of interference. In order to properly interoperate with multitasking gestures, applications must properly handle the following methods and notifications:
