iPhone iOS4.3.3 software updateCUPERTINO, USAApple‘s next update, iOS 4.3.3, is scheduled to be deployed to devices all over the world within the next two weeks.

The update is expected to make changes to the way the OS stores the location database following the global panic over the unencrypted data – new smartphones should come with the latest version, readers can buy the iPhone following this link or choose to view the iPhone 4’s specs.

iOS is known to save a rough location log of the user which may sometimes extend even an year in duration. This unencrypted stream of data can be used by anyone to track and locate a person. This shall be corrected with the new update which will restrict the OS to keeping a log which contains data for a maximum of 7 days. In addition, the update is also said to bring improvements in the battery life of the iPhone along with bug fixes in the iPod application.

Recently we wrote a guide on how to retrieve location data from the iPhone, interesting and perhaps even useful to users of the device.

Certain bugs which caused the phone to continue storing location data even on switching off location services has now been fixed. Following the next major OS update, this database will also be encrypted to prevent data interception.
