Apple acknowledges iPhone 4S battery problem… fix on the way!

Apple has released a statement which confirms there is indeed a problem with the iPhone 4S battery, and that a software update to iOS 5.0.1 which is coming in the next few weeks will fix it. They’ve already released a beta version to developers ahead of the official release to the public. As well as the battery fix, we hear there’s also some other goodies, according to MacRumours.

A statement released to All Things D reads: “A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices. 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.”

It was thought that the location service system in iOS 5 was the culprit behind the battery drain, basically the phone accessing your location when there’s no need and you haven’t asked it to. Some owners found that disabling the feature solved their battery troubles. iOS 5.0.1 will correct the issue properly and will also introduce multi-tasking gestures to Apple’s original iPad, so good news if you’re an owners of Apple’s first tablet and you felt left out when this new feature came to the iPad 2. Swipe four or five fingers up to access the multi-tasking bar, swipe left or right to switch between apps and pinch to return to the homescreen.

There are some security improvements, and some bugs affecting iCloud documents have been sorted too. With that in mind, there’s no mention of a fix coming that will correct the echoes some people are experiencing on voice calls when using a headset.
