iOS 4.3 Coming on February 13th?

// February 12, 2021

Did the NYTimes reveal the release date for iOS 4.3?

The NYTimes David Pogue posted a review of the Verizon iPhone with several interesting observations but one stood out in-particular.

This is how the original review was written.

The single new feature in Verizon’s iPhone is Personal Hotspot, where the iPhone becomes a Wi-Fi base station. Up to five laptops, iPod Touches or other gadgets can get online, using the phone as a glorified Internet antenna.
That’s incredibly convenient. Many other app phones have it — AT&T’s iPhone gets it on Feb. 13 — but Apple’s execution is especially nice. For example, the hot spot shuts itself off 90 seconds after the last laptop disconnects. That’s hugely important, because these personal hot spot features are merciless battery drains.

A few minutes later “Feb 13th” was changed to “Soon”. It does seem strange for him to use such a specific date.

Was it a honest mistake or will we see it on Sunday, Feb. 13th?
