Apple Admits iPhone 4S Battery Problems
Apple officially admitted the iPhone 4S is having battery issues.
Actually they admitted a "small number of customers" are experiencing crap battery life. I suppose a "small number" is PR
speak for "so many people have started complaining that we'll release a statement assuring them they're in the minority and that a fix is on the way."
coaxed the following statement out of an Apple spokesperson:
“A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices. 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.”
That software update will likely be iOS 5.0.1 which was released to developers today. Reports have already confirmed that the iOS 5.0.1 developers build does indeed fix a number of the battery issues plaguing iPhone 4S users. Apple included dictation and iCloud fixes as well.
Hopefully Apple's release window of "a few weeks" is more accurate than their iTunes Match release window of "by then end of October." Until Apple releases the update try this fix
to extend the 4Ss battery life.
Have any of the developers in the MMi community had the chance to test iOS 5.0.1 out and confirm Apple resolved the battery issues?
