Apple admits battery issues with iOS5 – fix incoming

Apple admitted today that a number of bugs have been identified in iOS5 which have caused battery issues for some users..

the full quote is as follows

“A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices,” Apple said in a statement to AllThingsD. “We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks.”

Apple have seeded this release (5.0.1) to developers, but it will be a couple of weeks before us ordinary folk get hold of it.

The battery fixes are listed as ‘Fixes Bugs Affecting Battery Life’.

Good to know appropriate action is being taken. My iPhone 4s battery life is definitely worse than my iPhone 4, but I thought that was because I can’t stop fiddling with it!
