Apple has just released iOS 4.3.3 for the iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the iPad 1/2. This new version of iOS is mainly aimed at clearing all the location data of a user, which the OS saves by default.
The location data of a user is cleared, once a user turns off the location sharing option.
Here is the iOS 4.3.3 change-log via BGR :
- Location database will no longer be backed up to iTunes
- Location database size will be reduced
- When Location Services are turned off, location database will be deleted entirely
- Battery life will improve
- iPod bug fixes
iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone owners can update their iDevice to iOS 4.3.3, by connecting to their PC/Mac and firing up the latest version of iTunes (10.2.2). Alternatively, iPad 1 owners can download the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file from here, while iPad 2 (Wi-Fi) owners should click here.
iPad 2 Wi-Fi+3G owners can click here, and iPad 2 owners using the tablet under the Verizon network, should click here to download the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file. iPhone 4 (AT&T) owners should head over to this link, while iPod Touch 4G owners should click on this link.

Apple recently rolled out iOS 4.3.2 for the iPad 1/2, iPod Touch 3G/4G and the iPhone 4. The update was a minor one and was mainly aimed at fixing bugs, and improving the battery life.
Thankfully, Apple did not patch the exploit used by hackers to untether’ jailbreak iOS 4.3.1. Now, @i0n1c has made changes in his jailbreak code so as to make it compatible with iOS 4.3.2.
The iPhone Dev. Team has also released an updated version of redsn0w incorporating the code. This means iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G/4G and iPad 1 owners can now jailbreak their device running iOS 4.3.2.
There is some problem jailbreaking the iPhone 4 with this version of redsn0w, so users need to wait until the Dev. Team releases a fix for it. Until then, they can use redsn0w to tether’ jailbreak their iPhone 4.
iPhone 4 users who have unlocked their handset using Ultrasn0w are recommended to stay away from updating to iOS 4.3.2. They should wait until an updated version of the app supporting iOS 4.3.2 is released.
iDevice jailbreaks can download the latest version of redsn0w from here.
Apple has just released another small update for the iOS, which bumps up the version OS to 4.3.2. The update is a minor one, and aims at fixing some bugs along with some FaceTime vulnerabilities. The iOS 4.3.2 update is available for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPad 2 and the iPod Touch 3G and 4G owners.
iTouch device owners can download the update automatically by connecting their iDevice to iTunes, and updating its software via the Check For Updatesbutton.
Alternatively, original iPad owners can download iOS 4.3.2 for their device from here, while iPhone 3GS owners should head over to this link. iPad 2 Wi-Fi model owners can download the latest version of iOS 4.3.2 from here, while 3G+Wi-Fi model owners should click here.
iPod Touch 3G and 4G owners should click here and here, respectively for downloading iOS 4.3.2. After downloading the required file, users should click on the Check for updates’ button, whilst keeping the Shift key pressed and select the IPSW file, they just downloaded to update.

Apple has just pushed a new update for iOS versioned iOS 4.3.2. The new update is available for the iPhone 4 (GSM Model), iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G.
The new updates fixes the following issues:
- Fixes an issue that occasionally caused blank or frozen video during a FaceTime call
- Fixes an issue that prevented some international users from connecting to 3G networks on iPad Wi-Fi + 3G
- Contains the latest security updates
If you jailbreak iPhone, unlock iPhone, jailbreak iPad or jailbreak iPod Touch stay away from this update as this might render your jailbreak and unlock obsolete. The dev team hasn’t yet released any news about an jailbreak or unlock for the iOS 4.3.2.
Also the update is minor in nature so you might get no benefits from upgrading from iOS 4.3.1 to iOS 4.3.2.
The iPhone Dev. Team has just released a new jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1, about which we reported a couple of days ago.
The new jailbreak is an untethered one, unlike the previous jailbreak released for iOS 4.3.1. The new jailbreak supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G/4G, Apple TV 2G and iPad 1 running on the latest version of iOS.
The jailbreak is also available for all Windows and Mac owners via Redsn0w or PwnageTool. Readers can download the application from here.
iPhone 4 owners, who have unlocked their handsets using Ultrasn0w, need to wait until an updated version of the app comes out. Right now, Ultrasn0w unlock is incompatible with iOS 4.3.1.
Sadly, iPad 2 owners need to wait for a jailbreak, until a boot rom level exploit is found for their device.
Incidentally, the first version of PwnageTool was released on this very day, three years ago!
The dev team has already been able to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 though a tethered jailbreak, however an unlock for iOS 4.3.1 has yet to be released. If you are someone who is waiting to update to iOS 4.3.1 to fix bugs but can’t do so because you have an unlocked iPhone, here is some good news.
The dev team honcho; MuscleNerd, has confirmed that a unlock for iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone will be out shortly with an updated version of Ultrasn0w. He confirmed this through a series of tweets, which read like this:
BTW ultrasn0w needs an update for 4.3.1, so unlockers should wait until that gets pushed out (hopefully also today)
The upcoming ultrasn0w update is *only* for 4.3.1 compatibility. Please don’t read anything else into it!
The ultrasn0w update won’t be a new unlock, but 4.3.1 FW itself breaks current ultrasn0w (unintentionally)
So the Ultrasn0w update will not be a new update but is a patch to fix an impending problem with iOS 4.3.1 that breaks the unlock and is only being updated for iOS 4.3.1. MuscleNerd also said that the iOS 4.3.1 update for Ultrasn0w should be released today.
So good news for you people who have been putting up with iOS 4.3 because of the unlocking problems. Hopefully it should be out anytime now.
It was just a few days ago that Apple released the iOS 4.3.1 update to the general public. The latest update of iOS is aimed at fixing some bugs found in iOS 4.3.1 including some graphical glitches on iPod Touch. The update also improves the battery life of all iPod Touch devices.
The iOS 4.3.1 update is applicable for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and the iPad and iPad 2.
iPod Touch device owners can download iOS 4.3.1 by connecting the device to their PC and then starting up iTunes, and click on the Check For Updatesbutton.
Alternatively, iPad 2 (Wi-Fi model) owners can download iOS 4.3.1 from here (607.5MB) and iPad 2 (3G+Wi-Fi, AT&T version) owners can download the iOS update from here. AT&T branded iPhone owners should head over to this link, while iPod Touch 4G owners should download the iOS 4.3.1 IPSW file from here.
Once you download the iOS 4.3.1 IPSW file, you can follow our earlier instructions on manually upgrading iOS 4.3.1. on your device.
Apple released the iOS 4.3.1 a couple of days ago, to address battery life issues and graphical glitches with iPod Touch.
Now, within a day of its release, iOS 4.3.1 has been jailbroken by DjayB6. Sadly, the jailbreak is a tethered’ one at the moment. This means iTouch device owners will need to jailbreak their device, every time they reboot it.
As of now, the iOS 4.3.1 tethered’ jailbreak will only work for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G/4G, Apple TV 2G and iPad.
Owners of the latest generation Apple’s tablet, iPad 2, will have to wait for some more time before a jailbreak comes out for their device. Until then, they are recommended not to update their iOS version to 4.3.1.
Also, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 owners who have unlocked their handset using Ultrasn0w are recommended not to update to iOS 4.3.1. If they do so, their baseband version will be upgraded and they will lose the network unlock. The tethered’ jailbreak is only available for Mac OS X based PCs.
Hopefully, a Windows version will be released soon. The steps to jailbreak your iTouch device running iOS 4.3.1 can be found here.
It was just a couple of weeks ago, that Apple released iOS 4.3 for the iPhone and iPad. Today, the Cupertino based company has released a minor update for the iOS bumping the version number to 4.3.1.
The update aims at fixing graphical glitches which some iPod Touch owners were facing, after updating the device to iOS 4.3. Other bug fixes include authentication issues with some enterprise web services, and image flickering when using the AV digital Adapter with your HDTV.
Hopefully, the update will also fix the battery life issues which reportedly some bunch of iPhone 4 owners were facing, after updating it to iOS 4.3.
iTouch device owners, who have jailbreak’ed their devices running iOS 4.3, are recommended not to upgrade at the moment. It is unconfirmed, whether Apple has fixed the security hole, used for jailbreaking iOS 4.3, with this small update or not.
Apple iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G/4G and iPad/iPad 2 owners can update their device to iOS 4.3.1 using iTunes.
Today morning, iOS hacker iH8sn0w has released an updated version of his application sn0wbreeze which brings some nifty features for iOS device owners.
The latest beta of sn0wbreeze brings with it hosts of performance improvements and bug fixes.
The beta also adds an option to enable multi-touch gestures for iTouch devices running iOS 4.3. Yes, the same multi-touch gestures which were first introduced by Apple in the iOS 4.3 betas, which were seeded to developers.
Below is a video showing the multi-touch gestures :
However, these handy multi-touch gestures were dropped from the final version of iOS 4.3.
sn0wbreeze allows iOS owners to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4 and the iPad 1/2. Readers can simply download sn0wbreeze from here and follow the on-screen instructions on how to jailbreak their device.
However, the app will only tether’ jailbreak your iTouch device running iOS 4.3, which means that the jailbreak will be lost once a user restarts his iTouch device.
Hopefully, the next major update of the iOS will bring these handy multi-touch gestures to all iTouch devices. Until then, iTouch owners can use sn0wbreeze to activate these hidden multi-touch gestures.
