Apple just released iOS 4.3.3. It’s available now in iTunes if you check for updates, and direct links to the downloads will be available shortly.
As previously reported, iOS 4.3.3 improves the way iPhones and iPads handle the location tracking database stored on-device by making it smaller in size. The location database will be no longer backed up to iTunes and it will be deleted entirely when Location Services are turned off.
Here are the direct links for iOS 4.3.3:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4 (GSM)
- iPad 2 (also iPad 2,2 and iPad 2,3)
- iPod touch 3rd gen
- iPod touch 4th gen
Apple also released iOS 4.2.8 for the Verizon iPhone. You can download it here. As for the build numbers: iOS 4.3.3 for the iPad 1 is labelled 8J3, with other iOS devices getting build 8J2. The Verizon iPhone’s iOS 4.3.3 is build 8E401.
