Apple: iOS 4.3.3 Releases for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch, 4.2.8 for Verizon iPhone to Fix Location Tracking Bugs

Apple has released iOS 4.3.3 for iDevice and iOS 4.2.8 for Verizon iPhone to fix the iPhone and iPad 3G location tracking bug that has raised a lot of controversy.

According to iphonehacks site:

Check the list and improvements in iOS 4.3.3:

This update contains changes to the iOS crowd-sourced location database cache including:

– Reduces the size of the cache
– No longer backs the cache up to iTunes
– Deletes the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off

“Last week, Apple officially responded to the iPhone and iPad 3G location tracking issue that had raised privacy concerns. Apple clarified that it is not tracking the location of the iPhone or iPad 3G as reported by security researchers. Apple also confirmed that it has never done so and has no plans to ever do so. But Apple admitted that it could do a better job managing the crowd-sourced location database and would release an iOS software update to address the bugs.”

Earlier rumors were going on that the latest iOS software update will improve battery life but here I don’t think so.
