Making good on its promises, Apple released an update to iOS 4 today that addresses many of the concerns raised over a file on the iPhone and iPad that stores location data.
The iOS 4.3.3 update reduces the size of the chunk of a crowd-sourced location database stored on individual devices, stops the file from being backed-up on iTunes and deletes the file entirely if a user disables location services.
Apple promised to release the update in a Q&A released a week after Pete Warden and Alasdair Allen published their report on the file. The company also promised that the file would be encrypted in the next big iOS release.
The update is available through iTunes.
