May 19, 2010, By Intermaggio

Those outside the US already know and love it, but for folks in the states, internet tethering has just become available in the latest beta software package from Apple, and we couldn’t be more excited. The package is iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4, and the software is making a lot of US consumers very happy.

Internet Tethering works by sharing your iPhone’s internet connection (Wireless, 3G, or otherwise) with a computer via USB or BlueTooth. This means that any computer with a USB port instantly becomes a mobile, wireless computer with internet access almost everywhere.

It’s great that this amazing feature will finally be hitting US consumers- it’s a piece of 21st century technology that everyone should take advantage of that makes lives easier.

What’s your take on internet tethering? Is it all it’s hyped up to be?
