One of the big revelations about the Verizon iPhone announcement -- apart from finally confirming that the iPhone was headed to its network -- was the inclusion of the Personal Hotspot feature. Built-in, carrier-sanctioned wireless tethering for the iPhone? We like the sound of that.
Now it appears as though all iPhone users may be getting the feature. Redmond Pie is reporting that an "unnamed source close to the situation" has confirmed that Personal Hotspot will be included in iOS 4.3 which is due to arrive some time in March. Boy Genius Report claims to have confirmation on this one as well, but we'll wait to see what materializes before calling this a lock.
It will be interesting to see whether the iPad also gets the same Personal Hotspot update, too.
Update: Redmond Pie has more evidence of Personal Hotspot in an upcoming version of iOS for GSM phones.Permalink | Email this | Comments
