Rumor has it that the latest version of the Apple mobile operating system, iOS version 4.3, is coming as soon as Valentine’s Day. Some sites are even reporting that the OS will arrive to users on February 14.

The new Verizon iPhone is scheduled to be released on February 10, and is to ship with the latest build of Apple’s iOS, presumably 4.3. Reason holds that Apple would release the updated iOS to all users shortly thereafter.

iOS 4.3 is to include some great features that are taking aim at rivaling what is available with Google’s Android OS. Features such as Personal Hotspot which allows other devices nearby to take advantage of the iPhone’s data connection, and AirPlay which offers the ability for the device to stream it’s content through the Apple TV, are some of the highlights.

Along with iOS 4.3, Apple fans are wondering about the next iteration of the Apple iPad, or iPad 2. The next generation of tablet device does not have a firm release date yet, but expectations are pegging an announcement sometime in April. Rumor sites are reporting it will have a new casing, made of lighter materials, almost carbon fiber like.

There is also talk of Apple working hard on accessories to go with the next generation iPad 2 such as near field communication or NFC technology. A higher resolution display is also expected.
