iOS 4.3 Revealed: iPad to Get New Multi-Touch Gestures

Looks like Apple’s upcoming iOS version 4.3 features some interesting new capabilities, including more intricate gesture controls. According to the Apple site macstories,  iOS 4.3 beta, just released to developers, supports new four- and five-finger gestures. For example, users will be able to pinch to get back to the home screen, swipe sideways to flip through apps, and swipe up with four or five fingers to launch the multitasking tray.

Boy Genius Report is reporting a slew of other features in iOS 4.3, too. These include AirPlay support for third-party apps, a mobile hotspot app like Verizon’s (if the carrier wants it), and a configurable slide switch on the iPad. iAd is also expected to use full-screen banners, basically large format adds.

Gizmodo has posted this nifty video that runs through the new gestures.
