According to Apple, the update “Fixes bugs affecting battery life”. Personally I haven’t experienced any increase in battery performance, and it is just as poor as it was before the update.
Worse still, after applying the update I noticed that I had problems with my email on the iPhone. I had a number of messages that simply said “No Sender” and “No Subject” even though prior to the update they were proper emails.
Removing the accounts and re-adding them fixed that, but it shouldn’t have happened.
One good thing though was the over the air (OTA) updates from Apple worked like a charm (all be it not fixing the problems) and it was nice for one to only have to do a small download for the update instead of the usual 650MB+ per Apple device.
Regarding the battery problems, website AllThingsD are reporting:
“The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices,” the company said in a statement given to AllThingsD. “We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”
So, come on Apple, fix this issue and fix it soon!
Did the fix work for you? Let us know…..
