Apple today made an incremental system update available to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. iOS 4.3.3 (GSM) and iOS 4.2.8 (CDMA) addresses the location tracking issue discovered recently. It reduces the size of the location data cache; no longer backs the cache up to iTunes; and deletes the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off.

"Fix Tracking Bug"?

Not sure if I buy that...
I don't buy that it's a "bug fix" because the phone was SUPPOSED to be storing and syncing location data. Bugs are errors, glitches, stuff happening that's not supposed to be happening, stuff not happening when it's supposed to be happening etc.

Actually, people could (possibly) notice performance gains depending on their device usage habits.

It reduces the size of the location data cache

But I'm sure some people will continue to complain, gripe and whine about it...

See How Easy That Was?

Great job Apple! I knew you could do it! Thanks to those who outed them on this. A little public scrutiny goes a long ways.
