New iOS 4.3 Beta 2 For Developers Released

With the launch date for the Verizon iPhone drawing near, iPhone users on carriers like AT&T too have been waiting to access features like personal mobile hotspot on their devices. Those features, as you know, will come with the new iOS 4.3 update.

Apple has followed last week’s release of an iOS 4.3 beta version with a new update that is still available only for developers. As expected, the new beta version is not compatible with models like iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G and other older handsets. What’s interesting is that Apple has pointed out that new gesture controls that were made available with the older beta version will not, in fact, be made available on the imminent public version of iOS 4.3. The company notes that the preview was provided in order “to gather input on how these gestures work with your apps”.

Is this a confirmation of the imminent arrival of an iPhone without a Home button?
