Wednesday evening I was busy updating my iDevices with the new 4.3.3 update. The update was released about Noon on Wednesday. This version update is Apple’s answer to the tracking of the device’s location and the fact the user of the device could not turn the “feature” off.
I spent about an hour updating two iPhones and two iPads to the newest updated version of the iOS software. At the moment, the update does not look like it’s broken anything. So we’ll call it a good.
I continue to be amazed at how easy these upgrades are and how reliable they have been. Each of the devices I upgraded this evening took between 10 and 15 minutes to complete and did not require that I do anything other than plug it in and click “OK” to upgrade. Couldn’t be easier.
For the techs in the room, the downloads where the following sizes:
- iPhone 4 – 667 Mb
- iPad 2 – 606 Mb
- iPad 1 – 560 Mb
So plug your iDevice into your computer with iTunes and get the update. And, won’t it be nice when we won’t need to plug in to update our iDevices…maybe in iOS 5?
