Apple’s 3rd update in just about as many weeks to their latest beta iOS (iOS beta 4.3) has just dropped and is ready for download (if your are a dev). What changes does it bring? At this stage we are unsure but once it’s down and installed we’ll be sure to update you. Hopefully Skype now works (unlikely though).
The update is available for all devices running iOS betas including iPhone (3GS/4), iPad, iPod touch (3rd/4th gen) and Apple TV.
Have you installed it? Found anything new or improved? Then hit the comments.
Update 1: The first of the changes has come in (although it’s a 4.3 thing not a beta 3 thing): You can now cancel app downloads midway through [via AppAdvice]. See below for details.
Update 2: Skype STILL doesn’t work… guess we’ll need to see an update to Skype before that happens.
Update 3: Not sure if this came in beta 3 (it may have been beta 2) but you can finally play direct from your iPhone camera roll onto the Apple TV. You may remember we commented about the lack of this back in our review of the Apple TV.. and although a little buggy (occasionally quits back to the Apple TV main menu) at least it is now here and I am sure by the time 4.3 is public it will work perfectly.

To cancel an app download you just press and hold an icon until they wiggle.
You will now see the little X in the top left corner of the app (previously this would only show for fully installed apps).
When you press it you will be asked the usual “Are you sure” question. Hit delete and it’s gone. Simple as that. Now I need to re-install NZ Tides after my little screenshot demo.
