We told you a few days ago that Apple will soon be releasing an update for its iOS software. The update was going to fix the much publicized location tracking issues that made the press recently. Today we can tell you iOS 4.3.3 has been released and you can update now to fix tracking bug.
AppleInsider are reporting that the latest update has changed the iOS crowd sourced location database cache. This includes the size of the cache and it is no longer backed up to iTunes. The cache is now deleted completely as soon as the Location Services are turned off.
You can get the update now through your iTunes account, and is available for the iPhone 4 and 3GS, both versions of the iPad, iPod Touch 3G and 4G. Owners of the Verizon iPhone 4 can now get iOS 4.2.8. Apple has moved quickly to release the update following all the uproar which was caused about the location tracking.
Apple had admitted user’s data was not meant to be collected after users had switched the Location Services feature off. A bug was too blame for the data being collected so Apple has now fixed this with the update.
