Apple to launch iOS 5 update to fix iPhone 4S battery issues

With Apple acknowledging there are a series of bugs within the iOS software causing the recently released iPhone 4S to suffer battery drain the Cupertino company has announced it is to release a software patch

Apple has confirmed it is to release an update for its latest mobile operating system iOS 5 in an attempt to curb the battery drain issues that have plagued the launch of the recently released Apple iPhone 4S.

Making the announcement in an official release Apple confirmed that a selection of bugs in the iOS 5 software were causing early iPhone 4S adopters see their handsets go from full power to completely drained without use in a matter of hours.

"A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices," an official statement from Apple read. "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 iPhone 4S Specs

Following the official iPhone 4S release last month Apple has faced a number of complaints around the device’s staying power. Bringing a host of new features to the handset including full Twitter integration and improved camera functionality iOS 5 has been targeted for its battery drain issues with location based services reportedly to blame.

Adding the same ARM dual-core processor found within the iPad 2 Apple has upped the spec of the 4S to bring it is line with current market leaders. An 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p full HD video recording capabilities also makes the grade with the handset’s voice commanded personal assistant Siri a key talking point.
