(Newser) – The uproar over the revelation that your iPhone is tracking you has led Apple to fix the problem. A software update released yesterday reduces the amount of location data stored on iPhones and iPads from a year to about a week. The iOS 4.3.3 software also allows users to delete the location log entirely by turning "Location Services" off, the Los Angeles Times reports. Click for Apple's initial explanation.
