Yesterday Apple rolled out iOS update 5.0.1 which was intended to fix the battery issues that have been plaguing iPhone 4S owners since the device rolled out. It seemed that for me and some others, the update did the job and improved the battery life, while for others, the battery updates did just the opposite. It appears that the complaints are ramping up in the Apple forums and Apple has just released a statement to All ThingsD:
“The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices. We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”
So could we be looking at getting another update soon?
Here’s a question for everyone, should Apple have released 5.0.1 knowing that there were some issues remaining, or because of their new OTA updating system, release incremental updates more often? I like more updates more often, but they need to make sure that they fix the actual problem before they release an update and not use customers as beta testers.
BTW: I modified the picture some that I didn’t think of the first go around.
