Apple, only a week after officially commenting on the problem, has released an update that fixes the tracking bug for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
I think that just about everyone who is into technology has heard of the tracking bug that Apple iPhone’s have been suffering. This was news that obviously put everyone on edge and may have persuaded new iPhone owners to hold off on buying an iPhone until this issue was fixed. There is good news to report since the bug that has been bugging all iPhone users has been fixed according to Apple.
The fix comes in the form or iOS 4.3.3, or 4.2.8 if you have a Verizon iPhone. The update is said to no longer backs up the cache to iTunes, Reduces the size of the cache and deletes the cache entirely when Location Servcies is turned off. The update is said to to be for iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, GSM-based iPhone 4, iPad, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touch. Looks like Apple is not just launching this update and forgetting about the issue since they have said that when it is time for their next major iOS software release , that they it is going to encrypt the file on the iPhone, by doing do data is not going to be collected by a third party for illegal purposes. The update is available via iTunes.
