After so much ranting and complaints from almost all Apple iPhone 4S with iOS 5 end-users (right after its official release last month), Apple engineers began to contact all of these end-users in the hope to identify the root-cause and possible solution to lighten up this big issue. And then Apple officially said that they will be releasing a fix for this which happens to be the iOS 5.0.1 that was seeded and released early this month. After the announcement, these iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users immediately downloaded and installed the latest build via OTA, hoping to solve the battery issue. Unfortunately it did not and for most cases, it actually made the situation far more than worst as they went back to Apple’s discussion board to express their disappointment – again.
Then just a couple of hours ago, John Brownlee of Cult Of Mac reported that Apple will be releasing their next beta iteration of iOS 5 which happens to be iOS 5.0.2. This time it was said that this will definitely fix the battery issue of iPhone 4S and making sure that smartphone will have the standard of 40 hours when on standby mode and 10 hours when being used. Along with the fix, it was said that with this build it will also extend the capabilities of Siri by adding more commands for it to recognize such as taking a picture, making a video and switching on or off your iPhone 4S Wifi and/or Bluetooth.
These new added features are really recommendable but for now like any other iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users, fixing the battery issue should be Apple’s first priority before adding more enhancements to their latest iPhone – am I right?
I will keep you updated as to when will be the official release of iOS 5.0.1 via OTA.
