Apple, battery issues, developer, iOS 5.0.1, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s
If you are one of MANY people having battery life issues with your iPhone 4 or 4s, then you have come to the right place. Apple is apparently aware of some issues causing the drain. The patched OS 5.0.1 Beta works with all iOS devices from the iPod Touch (3rd Gen.) to the iPad 2 (WiFi Edition). I included an insert from engaget.
Well that didn’t take long. After officially commenting on iOS 5′s battery woes, Apple’s gone and issued a beta of iOS 5.0.1 for developers to help fix the flaw. Per the changelog, build 9A402 fixes bugs relating to battery life and iCloud document syncing, improves voice recognition for Aussies and re-enables multitasking gestures on the original iPad. That last item is of particular interest to iPad devs, who had their ability to enable four-finger gestures unceremoniously yanked by Apple in iOS 5′s final release. We welcome these goodies with open arms, but here’s hoping universal Siri support comes in iOS 5.0.2.
Remember this is still just a developer release. Soon to be released to the general public. I’ll be sure to keep you all up to date.
