Just days after Apple released iOS 5.0.1 to the public to address bugs causing battery life issues for some iPhone users, there are still complaints coming in from customers regarding crummy battery life.
Apple has now issued a statement (via AllThingsD) claiming that the company is still looking into these battery life complaints, and are searching for the problems. Apple did not mention a forthcoming update with more fixes, but it would be safe to assume that work is already underway to resolve this issue.
To give hope to some, and rub it in the face of others, I never noticed battery life being that bad out of the box for my iPhone 4S, but then again, I had no benchmark (owning an older iPhone) to gauge it against. Then with iPhone 5.0.1 installed a noticed an improvement. I can go all day now and not dip below 50% charge even with semi-regular usage. In other words, there’s hope out there yet.
