iOS 4.3.3 released by Apple

Release comes just days after plans for software boost were leaked.

Apple has released its latest software update for the iPhone and iPad, iOS 4.3.3. The iterative boost is aimed at fixing bugs relating to location tracking, following a string of reports about the iPhone’s ability to store a users’ previous locations.

On its official website, Apple said, “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.”

While Steve Jobs said in an interview last week that the latter was the only bug that needed fixing, it seems the update as a whole addresses wider concerns about so-called location tracking. Apple appears to be responding to users’ concerns following the recent row by limiting the amount of data it takes.
