iOS 4.3.3 Location Services Fix

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Well here is the fix for that “Apple is tracking you” Issue.

I for one don’t really care, maybe I should? Either way, once the jailbreak for this comes out I might update, until then, Apple I guess you know where I am!

Here is “what” is fixed.

Reduces the size of the cache [it's only about a weeks worth of locational data now, as opposed to many months]

No longer backs the cache up to iTunes [Your new backups will no longer contain the consolidated.db file, making it a whole lot harder for a crazy spouse to take it and throw it into a third-party mapping tool to figure out roughly where you were at any given time]

Deletes the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off
