So what’s in the update? First, there is support for syncing with IOS 4.3 devices. The update will only be available on March 11. That is the same date that the iPad 2 will be available. However, you should download iTunes 10.2 before you unwrap your iPad 2 so you can get going immediately when it arrives.

The other thing Apple listed is an improvement to Home Sharing. As a result of this update devices with iOS 4.3 will be able to browse and play content in the iTunes library through a local network.
