Apple promised last week
that it would address the iPhone tracking issue
in a software update in the "next few weeks," and BGR
is now reporting that the update is coming within the next two weeks, or "possibly sooner." What's more, the site says that it's actually been sent an early version of the iOS update, and that it does indeed no longer back up the location database to iTunes -- the size of the database is also said to be reduced, and it's apparently deleted altogether when Location Services are turned off. Somewhat notably, BGR
says that the update includes some further battery life improvements as well, although it also
notes that it hasn't actually tried it out just yet -- it is promising additional details, though.
