Here we go, everything you need to know about iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in just 5 minutes -- orientation lock/mute switch toggle, multitouch navigation gestures, and Wi-Fi personal hotspot.
If you don't have a lot of time but do have a lot of curiosity, just hit the video up top, sit back and watch, and then let us know what you think in the comment below.
Note: If you're running iOS 4.3 and you can't get the multitouch gestures to work, try connecting to Xcode and hitting the "use this device for development" link. That should make the toggle pop up in Settings.
Now iPhone will be getting those gestures and iPad that hotspot... right?

I would LOVE these gestures on the iPhone. I constantly want a back button because I sometimes forget where I was even with fast-app switching.
Rene- any word if Rogers is going to support mobile hotspot? And it will work between iPhone & iPad yes?
What I really wish Apple would adopt/copy is the Notification system of webOS. That will be the only thing I miss on Feb 10 when my Verizon iPhone replaces my Pre plus.
I'm on Rogers and if they enable personal hotspot would I be able to connect a wifi only model iPad to my iP4 on the 3G network?
To be honest, not sure yet. That's entirely up to your carrier how and if this is implemented, but the whole point of a hotspot is that it turns your device into a wireless access point. So if Rogers adopts this feature, yes, you'll be able to connect a laptop or WiFi device to piggy back onto your iOS device's 3G connection.
