Apple releases iOS 5.0.1 update in an attempt to rectify battery drain

Weeks since the iOS 5 software update, some users have been noticing a dip in the battery life of their iDevices. Apple has admitted it’s a boo-boo on their side and today released iOS 5.0.1 for all affected devices.

The update also adds multitasking gestates to the original iPad, resolution of bugs with iCloud documents, improvements to dictation for Australian users, and a host of other bug fixes. It also marks the first update to be made available to the public over-the-air, ready for download through your iDevice without the need for a computer.

The update is ready when you are. Hopefully it’ll solve our battery woes.
