Apple releases iOS 5.0.1 to end your battery woes


Last week, we reported that Apple acknowledged how iOS 5 was draining the battery life on iPhones at an alarming rate. If you’ve been affected by that problem, simply download the newest update which promises to fix all that.

Not much is addressed in iOS 5.0.1, since it appears that their main concern was the battery bugs. However, Apple states that the update “adds multitasking gestures for the iPad, resolves bugs related to Documents in the Cloud” and also improves “voice recognition for Australian users using dictation”. Several security fixes are also packed into the update, which is another great reason to grab iOS 5.0.1 right away.
