iOS 4.2 beta 3 Changes and New Features [updated 2x]

An Italian blog examined iOS 4.2 beta 3 and listed out new features and changes in the beta release.

  1. More Fluid Animation.
  2. New SMS ringtone for iPhone 4.
  3. New Calendar Birthday icon.
  4. Game Center status message is now centered, previously left aligned.
  5. Recovery mode shows the new iTunes logo.

Apparently there’s no new feature on the iPad as the ability to enable or dissable a specific alert, bookmark in Sadari and traditional map view was already available in iOS 3.2.1 for the iPad.

MacRumors also pointed out that AirPlay is gone, but expects the feature to come back upon the final release.

Who says the iPad didn’t get any new features? It appears that iOS 4.2 beta 3 brings new higher resolution wallpapers to the iPad, this includes the rain drops, rock formation, pavement, blue jeans, and a bunch of floral and rock patterns. You can check out the video posted on Youtube.

If you know other new features and changes available on iOS4.2 beta 3, let us know at the comments section, thanks!
