iOS 5.0.1 OTA update battery life fix failure
Well now, as my colleague Mark recently posted, Apple has rolled out iOS 5.0.1, which is said to fix the issues of poor battery life on the iPhone, so all you iPhone 4S users out there should be pleased and see better battery life once you have installed iOS 5.0.1 right? Apparently though this isn’t the case.
According to the guys over at 9to5 Mac, the Apple support forums are a flood with iOS users who have updated to iOS 5.0.1 and have had their hopes of a better battery life dashed with numerous users complaining that their battery life is still as bad as before.
Most complaints are roughly the same stating that after downloading iOS 5.0.1 battery life is still draining pretty much as it was before, one guy say that he downloaded the update an hour and a half ago and since doing so the battery has drained 20 percent.
Another says that he downloaded iOS 5.0.1 and after an hour and a half of “phantom usage” and 97 percent, so it appears 5.0.1 had fixed nothing. While another claims that they lost two percent just by opening the Safari browser, and another says nothing’s changed battery drain still the same after iOS 5.0.1 update.
On the upside of things though most users say that the over the air update worked well although some experienced problems but this was apparently due to having less than 50 percent charge on their device.
So I guess the big question here is for our iPhone owning readers out there, how was the iOS 5.0.1 update for your, has it resolved the battery drainage issue for you or not? Fell free to let us know by dropping us a comment below.
