Compared with iOS 4.2 the update doesn’t bring a lot of new features, but it offers all
iPhone 4 owners the personal hot-spot feature that debuted on the Verizon iPhone 4. We’ve expected as much since we saw the beta release of 4.3 in January, and ATT has
yet to confirmed that it will support the feature on its iPhone 4.
When CNET first reached out to ATT to confirm pricing and availability for the feature, spokesman Mark Siegel said that he’d get back to us. As of this afternoon, however, Siegel replied that iPhone users will pay the same $20-per-month fee that the carrier now charges wireless hot-spot users (keep in mind that’s in addition to the $25-per month Data Pro plan). Also, iPhone users will be subject to the same 4GB data cap.
