Software Bloat From Apple, Too

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, May 6, 2011.

  1. Looking at this new OS update for Apple’s i-devices
    <http://www.zdnet.com/blog/apple/apple-releases-ios-433-in-wake-of-locationgate-updated/10087>,
    it apparently

    Reduces the size of the cache
    No longer backs the cache up to iTunes
    Deletes the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off

    That’s it. Those are the only changes worth mentioning. And it’s a 666MB
    download!

    And they can’t figure out how to make it available on the torrents,
    either...

    666MB? And you're worried about "bloat"?
