ComputerWorld reported today that all iPhones will be having personal hotspot capability in the next iOS 4.3 update. This will be similar to what Verizon announced yesterday as one of the features of their CDMA iPhone 4 which will be in the market by February 10.
However carriers will have to support the feature to give Wi-Fi access to up to five devices. It was not reported if this capability would come to AT&T. Apple did not comment on the report which was originally reported by BGR which relied on a reliable source.
There is no pricing info either for the personal hotspot feature for the Verizon iPhone, and the new feature after the iOS 4.3 update might be inline with Verizon’s pricing.
