The company has finally released a software update to its new mobile OS last week. This was made in attempts to fix a widespread problem with the battery life of Apple’s new iPhone 4S.
In addition, the latest software update, iOS 5.0.1, also contains multi-tasking gestures to the earlier editions of the iPad. Moreover, the operating system also closes a security loophole that could have made device users to load malware onto their Apple devices, including iPhones and iPads, via Apple’s App Store.
Right after the iPhone 4S had been released in October, the company started receiving complaints all over the globe about the disappointing battery life. Apple admitted the company has managed to sell more than 1,000,000 units of the new device within the first week. The complaints started popping up immediately and in a large quantity, and Apple finally acknowledged the problem with iPhone 4S in a statement a couple weeks ago. However, the company announced in a statement that there was an insignificant number of customers who have reported lower than expected battery life on the Apple devices running iOS 5. The team of developers for the company admitted that they have finally discovered several bugs affecting battery life. As a result, they decided to release a software update that could address the discovered bugs in a few weeks, and today it is ready and distributed worldwide. The most interesting thing about this update is that it is the first one issued by the company which was pushed to users of Apple devices through the cellular networks. Meanwhile, in previous cases, the users were required to sync up their electronic devices with computers to download an update.

|menahunie..... you do appreciate Wintel users have always been subject to Alpha Phase Releases of hacked up code that Microsoft have never fully developed let alone tested? You don't ??? Sad, really. Blame the parents. Computer users should not have any single computer system imprinted on their soul - release yourself from your torment, and install Linux.|
|What makes you think I use microcrap in the first place?|
Also apple runs in intel cpu's or did McFreaks miss that one.
Yes I am not an Apple fan nor will I be one when a company sells to idiots items that are jee whiz or oh how cute and most times the thing burns; blows up or the battery dies.
Case in point.. Why in the heck would some one buy an Ipad? For what an Ipad costs you can buy a really good and light laptop.
I use a netbook tricked out and it does way more than any Ipad could ever do. So its a little thicker and a little more weight BUT at 350.00 compared to the Ipad Price 500 PLUS.. Oh I have it loaded with Ubuntu by the way..
In parting where is a USB port on an iPAD? There is none.. As for wi-fi and 4g or 3g so? I can and do all that on my netbook.
To each their own just live the Chevy vs. ford feud..

|sorry but enough of apple. even my kids don't like the crap anymore its becoming seriously uncool to have apple products. I can only say I'm glad. overpriced cheap hardware that is second rate. Sorry but apple has lost its touch just design alone is not enough. Quality does count!|

|Apple sales reps see a field of sheep and automatically think of a bigger bonus. Apple made the right choice with no Micro SD nor USB support with it's devices as the majority of Apple users couldn't find either, wouldn't know what they looked like or what they did. Here I speak from experience as out of the 12 people I know that think Apple is the mutts nuts if 11 of them picked up anything more technologically advanced than a pencil I'd run for cover. Apple products are targeted perfectly at the inept sheep of this world.|
|bigcow2k talk is cheap from a Brit keyboard commando.|
I'll be in London in two months; why don't we meet and I'll teach you the facts of life ya wanker..
|Finally, i thought they would just release a New IOS, Iphone and say "What Problem" to the very end...|
But no matter, Apple's Sales still fall far below the more WIDELY used Android based Smartphones.
@Robman: really? i use Linux and Windows, Never have to reboot, Never seen a "Blue Screen" or system lockup. No security issues, so what are you going on about?
Are you referring to youre expierence using windows ME and IE?
Word for the Wise,
1."Safari" is based off from Lynx(text browser) and Netscape. It is well known that a large majority of its source is directly copied from the two...
2. APPLE BASED OS's ARE BSD, the backend have NOT changed in the history of the OS. Its STILL A UNIX-LIKE KERNEL, RUNNING A UNIX-LIKE OPERATING SYSTEM and RUNNING A APPLE GUI. you PAID for a $300 Cloned OS, Running on INTEL hardware...
Who feels like a moron when you can do the same thing on faster hardware for under $400/USD...
Apple Sells Advertising and Cute Cases... Nothing Else...
@EowynRohan: And you think Apple Doesnt? Remember, if Linux Developers stopped working on the kernel, you would have to deal with the Same BS Microsoft users do with periodic patching for Security. Remember, Apple OS's = BSD. Apple copy's Security patches to Linux Kernels, to reduce the need to hire Developers...
On top of that, you DO realise, that 80% of patches for Microsoft OS's are to fix IE/Outlook and 3rd Party Hardware Vendor Issues. Those issues would happen to Apple too if they allowed 3rd party Vendors...
Need i remind you they used there PowerPC platform to just a few years ago... Case Point - We are NOT beta Testers anymore, Windows is USUALLY stable out of the box. Difference is i can CUSTOMIZE my Computer, Youre just Stuck with that clone...
@bigcow2k: Seriously, she just stated the facts. Get over it, please. People which say things like this usually like higher intelligence and drive trucks...
Please stop this Fanboy Crap, i hate article's like this. Why is this even released, this is not news. i dont see reports about every linux/android/windows patch, i dont want to see about Apple. Be fair, not selective...
The Iphone Doesnt even deserve the title of smart phone, whats so smart about a phone that is so limited... Only Iphone worth even owning is a Jailbroken one... Which is ILLEGAL...
I can install ANY software i want on my ANDROID phone, its capable of the same thing and i can ROOT my phone without having to worry about the MANUFACTURER TRYING TO TAKE ME TO COURT.

|+1 for kingtigers point about freedom to customize. £100 HTC HD2 changed from Windows Mobile 6.5 (please people, don't snigger) to Gingerbread 2.3.7 (Rooted) with full Ordnance Survey 25k GPS mapping for trail riding in 10-20 minutes with no legal risks all because the device has a MicroSD slot AND it will take 3rd party maps/files which have been purchased to run on a different platform. You can't BUY a decent GPS unit, even second hand, in the UK for under £100.|

|@hunie oooooohhhh i'm so scared.... what, u gonna do that gunslinging thingy on me??? roflmfao|
|@kingtiger.. amen brother, i whole heartedly agree on ALL points.|
@gaspode.. i agree to this as well, i work for a mobile carrier and you all have no idea how true this is.
|Only thing I can say is people who hate on apple are people who have never owned an apple product. Either side has its faults and ALL products are under development. I have an Iphone and any other phone CAN NOT compare to it and yes I have had other types even from the android side. The Iphone rocks, the Ipad rocks, The imitators try to make up with features but they are still buggy at best.Like I said though the people who hate on apple either dont have one or cant afford to get one so the hate. I like some of what some people say in here but they always try to come of as if they are the last word and have super knowledge when they are hating. This is why Steve Jobs was so successful, he did not hate on the others products of even really give them much notice, he either made them better or invented new ones! To the comment about using Intel chips, yes he did but he made an OS that ran them much better.|
|Ohh and as far as usb support we dont need the wire anymore. and as far as quality, or phones burning up. Apple phones are high quality and the phones that burn up are because of serious owner abuse.|

|Quote - This is why Steve Jobs was so successful, he did not hate on the others products - Steve Jobs loathed Adobe which is why no Apple product can run flash based video.|
Quote - Ohh and as far as usb support we dont need the wire anymore. - This is true, WE'RE all using Bluetooth.
Quote - The Iphone rocks, the Ipad rocks - Neither do I'm afraid as although the high end macs are still seen as device of choice for professional photographers and musicians, their mobile devices have become the must have fashion item of the peer pressure generation who cannot see past the brand name to the lack of freedom the device offers. The iphone IS, i think, the best physically designed device on the market, I think it's the perfect shape and is snug fit in the hand with a solid weight. However, I buy a device to use as I want, not to be told how I can or cannot use it. Buy a car and be told what fuel to use? What you can or cannot tow? What CD's you may listen to while you drive? I'm to independent and free thinking to become a fanatic of the cult of Apple.

|@kingtiger01: surprisingly enough, i know for sure Sam never owned any Apple device and isn't paid for advertising. This is in the news only because there're some people who might be glad to know their problem is fixed. When Microsoft finally realizes that in Russia they now have another time zone and releases an update fixing that - you'll see it here as well, I bet!|

|apparently the new OS fix didnt actually fix the battery problem, only 7% polled found that their batter got better but still a problem... everyone else still says that its still bad or even got worse... who knew a better camera and faster processor would mess up the batter life so badly... maybe its SIRI, who knows.||
