iOS 4.3.3 Update to Address Location Tracking Bug

According to a recent report by BGR, a new update for iOS, version 4.3.3, is expected to be released soon. This update aims to resolve the controversial issue of location tracking that came to light last week.

Apple has acknowledged that the iPhone and 3G iPad have been storing information about cell towers and Wi-Fi hotspots to enhance location services.

Apple has committed to making several significant changes in the upcoming update. BGR has outlined what can be expected in the changelog for iOS 4.3.3:

  • The location database will no longer be backed up to iTunes on your desktop.

  • There will be a reduction in the size of the location database, which will decrease the amount of data stored on devices.

  • The location database will be deleted from the device once the Location Services are disabled.

In addition to addressing the location tracking issues, the update is also set to enhance battery performance and resolve some minor bugs related to the iPod.
