The release of iOS 5.0.1 update has failed to improve the performance of iPhone 4S batteries. Apple had claimed that this update will fix the battery-life problem of iPhone 4S. But iPhone 4S users continue to grumble and comment on iPhone forums, complaining that the update made absolutely no difference.
When Apple released it’s iOS 5.0.1 update earlier this week, it claimed that the battery-life problem faced by many iPhone 4S users was finally resolved. Apple had been working on the update for some time and had released Firmware 5.0.1 Beta 1 & 2 before finally releasing this update. As shown in the screenshot above, the update details said that after installing this update, the iPhone 4S users will no longer have to deal with bugs that affected mobile’s battery life.
A major disappointment:
However, the battery-life issues have continued. iPhone 4S users have installed the update but the battery-life still continues to deplete too quickly. To the users, this is a major disappointment because they are forced to charge their mobiles over and over again. Apple support forums were filled with angry, disappointed comments by the users. Some of them are produced below:
“Updated (via iTunes) and charged to 100 %. Killed all Apps, pulled the cable off. Did *nothing*. After one hour ~30 minutes of phantom-usage and 97 %. So it looks like 5.0.1 fixed nothing.”
“No change for me either. Battery drain on my 4S remains after upgrading to 5.0.1! :-/”
“No Change here either after 5.0.1.
I just did a phone reset and charged it up to 100% again.
Did 1 18 minute call, thats it battery is not 85%.”
Apple hasn’t responded to the issue officially so far. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a quick fix of this critical problem. Or if isn’t fixed soon, Apple may lose a small percentage of angry clients for sure.
