Apple Releases iOS Update

Apple has released iOS version 4.3.3 for the GSM iPhone 4, GSM iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch (3rd & 4th generation), iPad and iPad 2.  In addition to bug fixes, the latest iOS version also changes the way the crowd-sourced location cache is handled: 

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

A separate iOS version 4.2.8 is also available for the CDMA iPhone 4.

Both updates are available through iTunes when you connect your iOS device and click Check for Update.

I have installed the update without issue.  Total time to install and sync my iPhone 4 was approximately 13 minutes.
