Locationgate: IOS 4.3.3 released today…

I know this is primarily a fashion based site blog but … have you seen this photo?

This picture is a representation of the data that is collected on every iPhone device, thus the moniker Locationgate. This bug as described by Apple, Inc. has gained newsworthy exposure within the last couple of weeks.Thus forcing Apple to release an update for their IOS platform, IOS 4.3.3.

According to Apple, IOS 4.3.3 will repair the location gathering bug by changing the location database in the following ways:

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

This attempt at saving face should make most of the iPhone users happy to know that they are not being tracked…all the time.

What is your view?
