iPhone batteries don’t last like they used to!
15th November 2011
Apple has confirmed reports that, since the iOS 5 update, there have been issues affecting the battery life of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S handsets.
There have been numerous complaints across the web, especially on Twitter, of the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 battery life problems and Apple had yet to come up with a statement as to the cause.
Various solutions had been bandied around, including turning theoption off; the presumed bug would continually ping the location server even when the user remained within the same time zone, acting to drain the battery.
However, Apple confirmed that it has found the bugs, stating: "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."
Apple has now released iOS 5.0.1 which some thought was a fix for the battery issue - well not so for many people. Bowker IT advises all its customers to keep your chargers close by until a definite fix comes along. Let us know if you’ve experienced any problems and how you’re going about solving them.
