Apple Confirms iOS 5 Battery Problems

Well it looks like Apple have finally confirmed that iOS 5 actually does have some battery problems.


I wrote about my issues over the weekend, so I am glad that Apple have finally acknowledged the issue.

According to website AllThingsD:

Apple on Wednesday said it had found a few problems that are leading some iPhone customers to experience less-than-expected battery life with iPhones running its latest software.

“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 declined to comment beyond the statement.

Tonight also saw Apple seed iOS 5.0.1 to developers which apparently includes those fixes, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer until we get them!

Have you had battery problems?
