Apple Customers Complain Software Update Didnít Fix IOS 5ís Battery Drain

(Bloomberg) Apple Inc. (AAPL) customers say devices with the new iOS 5 operating system are still suffering from weak battery life, even after the company issued a software update meant to fix the malfunction.

Users took to message boards on Appleís website to complain that the software remedy delivered yesterday hasnít corrected the flaw. The criticisms first surfaced after Apple released the mobile operating system last month, in conjunction with its new iPhone 4S. Apple said that itís looking into the matter.

Apple also drew controversy last year over the previous iPhoneís antenna, which would lose signal when gripped a certain way -- a problem known as ďAntennagate.Ē Apple gave away free cases and updated the software to address those complaints.

1. I never had the issue to start with. In fact most haven't. Consumer reports has endorsed the 4S.

I never had that 'problem' with my iPhone 4 either.

What's really important is that Steve Jobs was right about Mobile Flash.

It's dead, Jim.

4. I think I still need mine upgraded. I normally let my hubby do technical stuff.
I've never had too many problems with battery either, then again, I have a charger at home, work, and in the car.
