Apple admits iPhone battery fix didn't work for all (2011-11-13) FREE E-Book
Apple 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 Apple's website to complain that the software remedy delivered last week hasn't 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 it's looking into the matter.
“The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices,” said Trudy Muller, a spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple. “We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”
Apple also drew controversy last year over the previous iPhone's antenna, which would lose signal when gripped a certain way - a problem known as "Antennagate”. Apple gave away free cases and updated the software to address those complaints. The iOS software runs on the iPhone, as well as the iPad and iPod Touch media player.
