    I always load the GM's since they are the same as the official. Except for last time with 4.2. We had 2 GM's

    Anyone know why CDMA is not supported? Personal Hotspot is not the only new thing to iOS 4.3

    Wouldn't it make sense to unify the line?

    From the TiPb article calling out no CDMA, my thoughts/concerns
    The only New 4.3 Feature already in 4.2.6 (current VZW blend) is the hotspot.
    New in 4.3:
    • Dramatic improvements to Safari and Nitro JavaScript engine. 2x as fast as before.
    • iTunes Home Sharing so you can stream from your Mac or Windows PC right to your iPad.
    • AirPlay is improved to allow all apps and websites to support video as well as audio.
    • Photobooth, the popular Mac app, is coming to iOS

    Home Sharing and AirPlay are important to me. Assuming MLB@Bat 2011 supports video out, that will be huge for me. So not having it will be a bit of a bummer.

    My iPhones never run 100% right while JB so that doesnt even matter to me. I even tried greenpois0n for 3 days and had bugs. Im jumping to 4.3

    Probably because of the differences between GSM and CDMA. They probably have decided to deal with one release (and its problems) at a time. CDMA version should be along fairly quickly.

    Not so sure that unification is possible until they activate the joint Qualcomm GSM/CDMA chip that is used in the Verizon iPhone 4 for CDMA only.

    If that is the case, then Verizon iPhone 4 customers would always be separate. Interesting thought, but why no mention what so ever?

    As an iPhone 3G holdout, I take exception to your subject line. The iPhone 3G *IS* an iOS device, but it is not supported by 4.3.

    I think they decided to release it to AT&T phones first because Verizon customers haven't even had their iPhones for a full month, so they figure let AT&T have the update first and i'm sure they'll have a CDMA update (Verizon) soon enough. . . Im sure this isn't the ONLY reason, however i'm sure it played a role in it.

    Does anyone know for SURE that 4.3 will fix the bluetooth audio controls in cars as i read on the beta forums???? 4.1 and 4.2 broke that ability so you cant see or control the iphone via car bluetooth in ANY 2010/2011 models

    As a Verizon user, I'm not all that worried about 4.3 not coming at the same time as
    the GSM phones will get it. It'll come soon after. No big deal. I'm sure this will be the norm.

    The thing is, this is something that Apple has said was a disadvantage of Android. Fragmentation. Now, if it was just personal hotspot? Ok. But apps will begin to update to iOS 4.3 capability, and we on Verizon will not get the advantages. iTunes home sharing? Again, not for Verizon users. Those two are my biggest beefs. The speed improvements in safari are good, too. I just think that some official word should go out, since they clearly called it out. I am sure the google alert I get tonight for Verizon iPhone will have a few sites with a dig or two about fragmentation.

    The only problem is that you're kind of making it sound like the CDMA version
    will get the update in 3 months. I'd bet my money that it would be released soon
    after the 11th. But we'll see how this goes.

    You illustrate my point. We don't know when. Is it the end of the world? No. Just would be nice to acknowledge tray it isn't ready and a timeline.

    Just a thought on my part. Can't think of any other reason why one release won't work on both. There has to be some basic difference (I'm guessing hardware) that keeps the OS from running on either phone. Techically, iOS is OS X (or at least it used to be.) Again, it's only a guess on my part as to the Qualcomm chip, but why use that chip if they weren't planning on a single product at some point.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    technically, it isn't really fragmentation. it's 2 variants, for now. android has so many current devices coming out with old OSes, new OSes and hybrid OSes (due to the manufacturers adding things like Blue or Sense UI).

    I get your point, and it is like with the first iPad. But if I have to wait until iOS 5, this summer (assumption) and apps like MLB@Bat support the video out at the beginning of the season? I'll be at a disadvantage. Again, not the end of the world, but a cause for disappointment.

    That said, seems like there are some blogs with a bit more detail saying that it is coming soon, but it isn't clear if this is per Apple or speculation. My guess is it would be iOS 4.3.1

    I doubt this is the reason as there are now two version of the iPad as well. One for AT&T and one for Verizon, and they are both getting 4.3. If it works on a CDMA iPad then why not a CDMA iPhone.

    Of course I may be wrong seeing as how we don't know what radio chips are in the new iPads yet.

    No multitouch gesture on iOS 4.3 GM for iPhone 4? Installed a few minutes ago and can't find any option to turn it on. Any ideas?

    You have to turn it on in xCode. Which you can't do since you not a dev and probably don't have access to Xcode
