Last month, Apple has once again swept the nation with its newest major smartphone release, the iPhone 4S. If you are a regular reader of our blog, then chances are you already own Apple's latest and greatest smartphone. But if you have been paying attention to the news regarding the iPhone 4S lately or maybe based on your observation if you own the device, you will know that the iPhone 4S's battery life have some problems.
And now based on a recently published report, the iPhone 4S's battery problems have become quite prevalent. Many customers are now complaining about the iPhone 4S's seemingly degraded battery life. Just how many? Well, it seems there are enough number of complainants that Apple started to acknowledge the problem, prompting the company's spokesperson to release a statement through The Loop:
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.
From what it looks like, a "small number" should be PR speak for saying that the problem has become widespread and there are many complainants already, but they are only assuring that those customers are in the minority. But it seems that Apple is at least already in the case. iOS 5.0.1 is highly likely to solve these battery issues on the iPhone 4S but the firmware update is only available for developers only. iOS 5.0.1 general public release should be due in a few weeks.
Well there you have it. If you have been having problems with your new iPhone's battery life, do not fret because you are not alone. And a fix is already on its way. In addition to turning off Bluetooth and WiFi when not in use, we suggest you try this fix too. [via TheLoop]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
