When Apple dropped iOS 5.0.1 to fix the battery issue, yesterday, most of you updated to iOS 5.0.1 to fix the battery issue but the update hasn’t helped. In fact, some users not only claim the battery drain persists, but actually has gotten worse.
There are 275 pages from unhappy customers on this issue, here are just a few comments:
“Installed the new IOS 5.0.1 two hours ago. I started a test at 1:30 CT today. 5% battery drain in 45 minutes with WIFI and location services turned on and me not touching the Iphone 4S. The new update doesn’t seem to help much.”
“Lost 15% in 45 mins and I didn’t even use the phone. What happened? This update is no help. In fact, it drains the battery even quicker.”
“Upgraded to 5.0.1 this morning. Still draining at the exact same rate. Unplugged with a full charge 2 1/2 hours ago, and already down to 80% with light usage.”
“I updated last night (UK) and it didn’t fix anything. Losing 6% / hr in standby which is the same as with 5.0.”
“Updated to 5.0.1 last night and my battery life seems even worse than before! My phone dropped by 4% overnight in flight mode! I have had it out of flight mode since 6.30am (at which time the battery was at 51%), and its now 8.30am and its down to 35%.”
For those jailbreakers who didn’t update to iOS 5.0.1, STAY AWAY if you want untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
