Photo Stream Service, iPadTime and PhotoBooth Added To iOS 4.3 Developer Build

AppleInsider reports this morning that the latest developer iOS 4.3 beta 2 release mentions a new MobileMe-based Photo Stream picture sync feature, supposedly part of a new Media Stream service and in addition includes versions of a standalone FaceTime and PhotoBooth app for iPad.

The idea behind Photo Streams is the facility that you will be allowed to invite other users to view your photos as you take them and upload them to a service, which seems to be connected to MobileMe and 9to5 Mac speculate that Media Stream can be directly connected to Find my Friends.


We already know that this latest release includes updates for the new Apple TV, iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS as well as the 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch.

We also know that the iPad multitasking gestures that were uncovered in beta 1 won’t be enabled in this latest version. Instead Apple has said that this version ‘provides a preview to gather input on how gestures will work with your apps’. I guess we will have to wait for beta 4.4 or later before we see this fully implemented but it’s all good.
